Josephine Balmer’s delicate yet powerful sequence traces the devastating impact of her mother’s sudden death. Employing Balmer’s characteristic blend of original poetry and classical versioning, Letting Go: Thirty Mourning Sonnets and two poems draws on a variety of sources and inspirations, from Virgil’s Georgics to Google’s Street View. Heartbreaking but ultimately healing, these poems re-enact the crushing pain – and final acceptance – of a bereavement that ‘feels like too little love. Or too much’.
