Praise for Tenebrae: A Memoir of Love and Death

“Dan Flanigan is a visionary poet. His series of poems,¬†Tenebrae: A Memoir of Love and Death, based on ancient services sometimes performed in the Roman Catholic Church, grapples with the death of his wife….I am filled with its humanity, its depth of vision, and imagination…These poems are some of the most moving poems I have ever read about death. What he has created is astonishing…they are the human heart in a singular and authentic voice. Flanigan’s poetry is everything I think of when I think of what poetry should be-playful, intelligent, of the personal and the universal simultaneously.”

From the Foreword by Matthew Lippman, author of A Little Gut Magic, The New Year of Yellow, Monkey Bars, Salami Jew, and American Chew
