The orchard :
ISBN: 1929918488. OCLC Number: 54111507 BOA Editions, Ltd,. . Richly allusive, the poems in Brigit Pegeen Kelly's "The Orchard "evoke elements of myth in distinctive aural and rhythmic patterns. Her poetic strength lies in her ability to cast poems as modern myths and allegories. Propelled by patterned repetitions and lush cadences, the poems move the reader through a landscape where waking and dream consciousness fuse.
