Brian Brett’s hallelujahs

April 05th, 2023

In his seventh decade, poet, fictionist, memoirist and journalist, Brian Brett is thinking about mortality as evidenced by his recent collection of poems, To Your Scattered Bodies Go (Exile $24.95). The title, taken from John Donne’s Holy Sonnets, references the afterlife but many of these new poems are about looking back to celebrate a life lived to its fullest. His advice to others is full of vigour and passion: “…I write these words / only for those who know that going too far / is not going far enough.”  978-1-55096-889-7
