For the next three weeks, Ms. Quesinberry is live on 158 morning program affiliates while presenting, “The Art of Poetics and the Written Word: Living Beyond Adversity toward a Responsive Eternity.” The discussion topic aligns to Ms. Quesinberry’s release of, “Stolen Lullabies and Secret Impasses,” which is a compilation of poetics and prose intended to aid readers in living beyond adversity to a responsive eternity. It sounds convoluted but Donna believes poetics, expressly 20th and 21st century, are cathartic in nature. Of course, the concept of melodramatic love poems young men and women engage about unrequited love comes to mind but the work she composed isn’t assuaging or simplistic. It is, rather cerebral, intense and untamed ~ certainly melancholy and bereft with discordant realism.
The overarching theme of this title is sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse and neglect – all of which Ms. Quesinberry has survived; however, she shares not all poetry or prose in the title is about “her.” Certainly, this isn’t a “confessional” chapbook of poetry popular in the 1950’s. There is a Foreword from Sage Sweetwater, a Firebrand Poet of Colorado and also a film-maker, author, and much more, here’s an excerpt:
The author, Donna L. Quesinberry has expressed a societal faux pas in such a creative way, through spirituality, through poetry, fact, and personal narrative. The author is intellectually at the right place, and present in mind during the writing, which is cathartic and wise. She has given her readers a palpable understanding of what happens to women forever changes who and what we are. This volume belongs on the bookstore and library shelves in the sections under “Women’s Psychology” and (accommodating the fad of creating sections by major chain booksellers) “Painful Lives.”
