Her style brings readers into the direct and immediate experience of deep tragedy as well as literature. Robbins enters into conversation with Keats and Whitman, Melville and Dickinson, discovering through these writers that grief has amplified life's spectrum, welcoming her into the realm of literature where imagination meets experience in new and profound ways.
This story is ultimately hopeful and transcendent, transforming despair into a new experience of life and a recognition of the love that remains after death. Beth Robbins is a longtime English and drama teacher at the Berkshire Waldorf High School in Stockbridge, MA.
The new book is "A Grief Sublime." Our friend and wonderful actor Karen Allen read the audiobook.
