Summary
A Wake with Nine Shades is an exploration of grief and culpability, a Dantean descent through contemporary midlife crisis. Populated by ghosts and children, lovers and amputations, bodies of water, insomnia, debt and domestic violence, Steinorth measures what is broken against the white space of the page, paying homage to the Great Lakes and snowscapes her poems inhabit and the vacancies, denials and drains they circle. Formally inventive and musically obsessive, the book's unconventional formal construction and lyric wit contribute what Eleanor Wilner deems the essential "Lightness" described by Italo Calvino, noting Steinorth's "ability to treat weighty subjects with a mastery of style . . . a liveliness of imagination and intelligence that lightens, without denial, what would otherwise be unbearable. . . ."
