ABOUT THIS BOOK
In Love and the Soul's title poem, a male speaker asks "not to believe/that what lights up the world from within is always the wrong thing" and is answered by a female speaker midway through the book who says "I don't think men and women/are meant to have relationships any more." Between these poles, Williamson's powerful collection explores the enormous burden of expectation that our culture has placed on love and its gifts to the soul.
