Best experienced in audio form, Caroline Kennedy’s contemporary and classic poetry selections represent "passages" in a woman’s life. Sharon Olds’s contemporary poem “High School Senior,” performed by Jane Alexander, beautifully cuts deep into the experience of motherhood. In Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton’s classic poem “I Do Not Love Thee,” Hope Davis coquettishly muses on the experience of falling in love. These are just two examples in a stellar collection. Kennedy introduces each section, reading in her patrician voice. As the poems reflect on a woman’s life journey, the combination of narrators creates a verbal ambrosia, delicate to the ear and heart, evoking deep emotions. H.E.F.
