Vita Brevis Press is proud to announce that the latest poetry collection by Gabriela Marie Milton is now available! You can support Vita Brevis and great poetry by picking up a copy. I had the privilege of writing the foreword to Milton’s collection, which I’ll share below:
“A poem in itself is a marvelous thing, but a collection of poetry is something else entirely — like the broader beauty of an arabesque, it’s felt more than seen. Perhaps this is what T.S. Elliot meant when he said genuine poetry communicates before it’s understood. The nebulous beauty of art, the feelings it stirs before we parse it for meaning, sometimes finds the world with more precision than instruments of any other sort.
“This is what you’ll find in Gabriela Marie Milton’s poetry collection, Woman: Splendor and Sorrow. It’s an arabesque of womanhood, depicting the broad strokes and finer details of love, identity, and femininity. With vibrant imagery and fresh ideas, Milton’s poetry and prose explore these topics with passion and sincerity. There’s something here for all readers.”
