• Demeter Does Not Remember

Mary Madec's second collection is held by a narrative, like the one which each of us makes to hold our lives together. It takes as its inspiration the ancient Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone to explore the human journey of mother, daughter, lover. The duality of light and darkness in the cycle of the seasons provides a backdrop for an awareness of personal transformation which seeks a truce with age. Many poems trace how insights come, and how memory functions in shaping our lives. Though not autobiographical, this book is deeply personal. Mary Madec is Director of Villanova University's Study Abroad Program in Ireland. She has a Ph.D in Linguistics from The University of Pennsylvania.
