Robin Metz received the Rilke International Poetry Prize for Unbidden Angel, one of 25 books recommended by the White House Comission on Complementary / Alternative Health. --Cross-Cultural Communications. Unbidden Angel is an elegy for Robin Metz's wife, who died unexpectedly several years ago, not long after she and Metz were married. This collection forms a narrative grief cycle that attempts to speak through the horror of that loss. We are taken inside of an almost mad, frightening and beautifuly precise articulation of loss and grief. --Sheryl St. Germain.
