“Angela Janda’s poems are beautifully written and deftly arranged. Any reader familiar with the tales of Antigone and Oedipus will recognize these ancient figures in this collection. Their tragic resoluteness is there and keenly exposed, yet Ms. Janda’s creative use of language and imagery holds the reader in the contemporary world of swimming pools, candy jars, and wedding bells. Her skillful compositions link the present to the past and the reader feels closer than ever to these figures and their poignant stories.”
