Summary In Zorba's Daughter, the 14th volume in the Swenson Poetry Award series, Elisabeth Murawski speaks from a vital and unique sensibility, finding in ordinary images an opening to the passion of human courage in the face of deep existential pain and ambivalence. These poems awaken our joy as well as guilt, our hope as well as grief. They often evoke a sorrowful music, like the voice of mourning, but even in pointing to ""the black holes of heaven,"" Murawski turns our gaze upward.Zorba's Daughter was selected for the Swenson Award by the distinguished poet Grace Schul.
