Children of Paradise
Rosenberg, Liz
A book of poems about “children” in the widest sense--from children of the Nazi-torn Warsaw ghettos to the American poor, as well as poems of domesticity, love and daily life.
Liz Rosenberg is Associate Professor of English at State University of New York - Binghamton University. Her poetry has been widely published and she is currently writing a column for the Boston Globe. Rosenberg is the winner of the Lee Bennett Hopkins Prize, Paterson Prize and Books of Distinction Award.
“Rosenberg has the gift of connection, the ability to enter into an empathetic contract with the blind child, the impoverished workman, the alienated teenager, the elderly cardiac patient her unborn child—and to deal with this material impressively.”—Maxine Kumin

"Liz Rosenberg is clearly a poet of great distinction in her generation. . . . She has a great compassion, an articulate and resourceful control, a very active center in the contemporary world's disposition and complex occassion. I am moved indeed by what she has to say." —Robert Creeley

"At first glance, this is a collection of tragic loss. Perhaps first suggested by the book's striking cover, the death motif is powerful and direct. . . . Yet, upon closer reading, these are 'love poems scrawled, scratched out,/blotted with tears.' These are pieces that confront reality, that address the power of love that transcends all physical limitations and reason." —Kliatt
