To The Dead in the Graveyard Underneath My Window

Book cover
By: (1878-1914)

To The Dead in the Graveyard Underneath My Window by Adelaide Crapsey is a haunting and mesmerizing collection of poetry that delves into themes of death, loss, and remembrance. Crapsey's use of the cinquain form adds a sense of constraint and urgency to the poems, as if each word has been carefully chosen to convey the weight of the emotions she is expressing.

The imagery in these poems is stark and powerful, evoking a sense of stillness and melancholy that is both unsettling and beautiful. Crapsey's language is precise and lyrical, drawing the reader in and holding them captive until the very end.

While the subject matter may be heavy, there is a sense of hope and resilience that runs throughout the collection. Crapsey's poems remind us that even in the face of death, there is still beauty to be found and solace to be gained.

Overall, To The Dead in the Graveyard Underneath My Window is a poignant and thought-provoking read that will stay with you long after you have turned the final page. Adelaide Crapsey's skillful craftsmanship and emotional depth make this collection a must-read for any lover of poetry.

Book Description:
Her death was tragic. Full of the desire of life she yet was forced to go, leaving her work all unfinished. Her last year was spent in exile at Saranac Lake. From her window she looked down on the graveyard — "Trudeau's Garden," she called it, with grim-gay irony. from the forward to Verse, by Claude Bragdon - Summary by from the forward to Verse,by Claude Bragdon
