Overview

The poems in Irene, written before and after Cooley’s mother’s death, form an elegy to her. In Cooley’s words: “. . . it’s taken on some associations, connections with the Persephone story perhaps most obviously. The book is very personal, very close and emotional to me. ”“. . . [Irene] is dense, emotionally rich and moving. ”—The Globe and Mail
