Book summary: People on the Bridge


It is by far the most philosophical of the three and as philosophical a book of poetry as any. She deals with huge questions of the meaning of human existence (if any) and especially focuses on the question as to whether the “famous” of history are really any more interesting or important than the masses of us who pass, nearly nameless, into total obscurity within a short time after our deaths.
