Karen Mulhallen’s In Memory is a recapturing and celebration of the departed. Of joyful and poignant moments together in hospitals in Canada, in care homes for the aged in England, in walking in the English south Downs, in rainforests, and underwater in the Great Barrier Reef, and on horseback in Australia, and in the simple task of picking berries on a rural Ontario farm.
This is the most personal of Mulhallen’s twenty-five published books as these poems engage directly with the individuals, with friends and with family whom each poem celebrates. The poet travels through time and space, descending to the dream world and journeying to the land of the dead, interacting with those who are now beyond.
