Foster, Mary Katherine

By way of a libretto, these poems follow a singular speaker who figures herself within the simultaneous growth, passion, violence, and destruction inherent in the art, mythology, archetypes, dreams, and natural phenomena that she encounters, as a means of negotiating forms of grief and loss. For her, realities of sleep, memory, language, and consciousness regularly collide and threaten to eclipse or ruin one another, from which follows her interest in the unities of musical compositions, Latin language roots, and the structure of storyscapes.
