Samenvatting

In Filthy Labors, Lauren Schmidt draws on personal observations from her position as a poetry teacher at a shelter for homeless mothers, as well as her own roles as daughter and sister through times of family turmoil. She condemns the indignities suffered by the poor and the powerless and praises the work of those who do the caretaking. Here is poetry in the great tradition of social justice literature going back to Walt Whitman. Organized around the Catholic Sacraments, these poems call upon Whitman directly, for his words replace the liturgical text of these rituals to rejoice in the redemptive power of poetry in the absence of religion's saving grace.

Recensie(s)

The range of Schmidt's vision is exquisite, and the unity of this work is inspiring. The whole of the poems form a single visionary revelation, a sustained focus that is very rare these days. No one, I believe, has ever written with such delicate honesty and compassion about shelters for homeless women. Filthy Labors is an indelible whole, an articulation of convictions deeply held and a life fully lived. -Sam Hamill, author of Almost Paradise, Dumb Luck, and Destination Zero The poetry of Lauren Schmidt does what poetry should do: make the invisible visible, indelibly, unforgettably. -Martin Espada
