In The Shadow Loom Poems Mary Hughes traces a full, generous lifethe memory of her poet-mother at the end of a long day speaking her poems into the dark, young love, the sorrows and joys of a large family, the rich harvest years both welcomed and resisted. These poems are personal, even intimate, but the precise, sensual language gives every reader a place to stand that is both familiar and surprisingly new. Family, friends, and an ecstatic celebration of the natural world are at the heart of this book, but Hughes faces bravely the many kinds of violence that mar our waning and love-tethered world. But in The Shadow Loom Poems pain never has the last word. These poems are, in Hughess words, pilgrims of hope, sent out into a dangerous but dearly loved world. Mara Faulkner, O.S.B. author of Going Blind: A Memoir, finalist for the 2010 Minnesota Book Award.
