Dead Poet

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 2:01 PM

The New York Times  today on a poet, Judith Kazantzis,
"who died on Sept. 18 at 78" —

"Judith’s oldest sister is Antonia Fraser, the biographer
and novelist and widow of the playwright Harold Pinter."

"Her [Judith’s] death was confirmed by Andy Croft, who runs
Smokestack Books, the publisher of 'Sister Intervention' [sic* ]
(2014), Ms. Kazantzis’ last collection of poetry. He did not
specify the cause or where she died."

Notable lines from that book's poem "In the Garden" —

Two trees of life, not in the woods,
but in the garden.

See also the post "Death Day" in this  journal on Sept. 18.

* The title is actually "Sister Invention ."
