All Sins Forgiven ~ Poems for My Parents

No relationship is more personal, yet universal, than that of parent and child. These richly detailed poems, begun as a way for the author to understand his own mother and father, connect readers with their own experiences in that most fundamental of relationships, and are poignant reminders that the lives of those closest to us sometimes offer the deepest mysteries. Recognized by Boston Magazine as “one of the finest poets in a place that has more than its share,” Charles Coe is known for his powerful readings and unusually warm and compassionate voice, and for poems that speak to the heart and mind as well as the ear. Author Marge Piercy writes, "Charles Coe's poems move and touch people. His voice is direct, honest, never forced or false in its note of intelligent humane awareness. His subjects are ones that involve the audience and attract the reader, things we want to read about and to which he brings his unique conversational but powerful voice. We hear and believe." Free and open to all thanks to the Friends of the Hancock Town Library.
