With a range that extends from Pompeii’s destruction to modern-day America’s extremes of faith and folly, Sarah Kennedy regards human experience, especially women’s lives, with a gaze alert to injustice and a voice that’s unmistakable. History-haunted, justly angry, or ecstatic, Kennedy’s poems express with equal force a martyr’s searing judgment, a shunned pilgrim’s religious fervor, or a woman’s forebodings over news reports of war. In tracing how intense belief may enrich or distort what we behold, The Gold Thread offers outcast saints, women accused of witchcraft, and other visionaries, troubled yet far-seeing, in poems that are urgent, eloquent, and unforgettable.
