Description

In Overdue Wife, a woman explores her disappearance from one life and reappearance in every other as she addresses her former husband, herself, and her new husband in a series of epistolary poems. Regardless that no longer satisfied in her first marriage, she laments vanishing from the life she and her husband shared for years. She then describes the unexpected joys of solitude throughout her recovery and emotional convalescence. In any case, in a sequence of sonnets, she speaks to her new husband, whose first wife died from lung cancer. The poems highlight how rebeginning on this relationship has come about in part as a result of two couples’ respective losses. Probably the most personal of Claudia Emerson’s poetry collections, Overdue Wife is both an elegy and a celebration of a wealthy present informed by a complex past.
