Bone Garden
by Moulton, Renee, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 63; 1528001
Abstract (Summary)

Bone Garden is a collection of poetry that inspects interpersonal communication and an often misguided sense of connection with others. Through investigations of memory, disaster, aging, and gender, the collection depicts a world in which many of us fruitlessly search for empathy and a sense of solidarity. Leading this investigation is a narrator whose frustrations with isolation often result in passive aggressive behavior or violence that furthers her separation from others. Bone Garden proposes solidarity as a salted plot and despair as the bitter fruit harvested by those who believe in it.
