These are bardic poems, but not at all presumptuous or abstract. Berdeshevsky's earned them by her life fully lived, her compassion, and the music that makes them poetry. They're also personal poems, but not at all narcissistic or obscure. They represent a full, grand consciousness both anchored in our own shared moment and illuminating it. An essential book, the best possible companion in the wreckage of now.
