Book Launch: The Elegy Beta by Mischa Willett
February 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – March 10, 2020 @ 8:30 pm
Join us as we welcome a new book into the world! The Elegy Beta—the long-sought, the hoped-for coming, a terrifying apparition in the sky—is officially landing. These new poems imagine the angelic in a different register, while crafting observations on daily life that are meant to offer what one reviewer calls “astonishing moments of consolation.”
There will be time to mingle, hear some music, raise a toast to the success of the enterprise, hear some poems, and have books signed.
About the Book
The Elegy Beta is the follow-up poetry book to Mischa Willett’s critically-acclaimed debut, Phases. It features lyrical ruminations on subjects classical and contemporary, theological and practical, suffused with characteristic candor and wit. The long eponymous poem that anchors the collection is an extended meditation on angels, as a kind of tribute to the poet Rainer Maria Rilke.
