dc.description.abstract <p>Through poems and lyrics essays, Light Streams in Again tells a narrative of family, art, mental illness and memory, set primarily in southeastern Virginia, where the author—and collection’s narrator—was raised. Woven into vignettes of memory are meditations on natural cycles: primarily using the lenses of biology and physics. In particular, the collection is interested in the ways natural cycles interact, run parallel, or collide with interpersonal relationships and individual lives. The narrator tells his own story through the confluences and patterns formed in the tangling of personal and impersonal cycles, particularly patterns of decay, loss and maturation. Simultaneously, the collection meditates on, and blurs, the lines between his narrative, the narratives of family members, and broader ecologies.</p>
