Poetry. Ish Klein's third collection, CONSOLATION AND MIRTH, has at its center a book-within-the-book, a series of short riddles which take as their inspiration a 10th-Century codex of Anglo-Saxon poetry. In these riddles and the brilliant, far-ranging poems that surround them, Klein continues her exploration of the rough and beautiful seas of being alive, because, as she writes, "a human has a right to try her human feeling / then take the ship that's left and steer it through its reeling."
