Stania Slahor's reverberations: collage of dreams presents a collection of verse that covers a lifetime of poetic musing. Some of her poems describe in scintillating imagery life on the ocean along the Mexican coast where she winters. In other poems, she captures the traumatic and heartwarming memories of growing up in wartime Bohemia through her attention to poetic detail and communing with nature. Throughout reverberations, Slahor eloquently expresses a distillation of love and loss, finding solace in the rhythms of the sea and stars.
In this, her third volume of poetry, her imagery reverberates with everyday joys and pains. Whether considering her past or the playfulness of nature, she relies on rhythmical sounds to produce increasing tension and echoes. Reverberations resounds with dreams, intuitive cognition, pleasures, and sorrows, all beautifully illustrated by the renowned European artist, Jana Trnka.
"Highly recommended for its celebration of life beautifully observed!"
-Penn Kemp, sound-poet
"Stania Slahor's poetry stems from her troubled heart. She is a thought-provoking artist and poet who encourages her readers to cherish their dreams."
-Joan Matchett, editor
