More from "Daughter of a Tree Farm"

Last week's "Tuesday Poem" on Dusie featured an excerpt from "Daughter of a Tree Farm." The sequence of poems has at its foundation an erasure of the Autobiography of Countess Tolstoy as translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Leonard Woolf in 1922. The poems draw on this erased text, while incorporating my own words to find a synthesis of the two minds.
