Sandi Huszagh’s free and structured verse takes an intense look at how family dynamics shape daily life yet create legends for future generations. Her close-at-hand experiences with death and the dying allow her work to soar above the pain and fix hope on regeneration. Exposure to dissimilar regions and cultures is reflected in her treatment of powerful coastal encounters and the healing relief of the Great Plains. From her daily exchanges with street people, she expresses profound connections but keen awareness of their manipulations and miseries. Confined within family and societal strictures, her poems yearn for transformation and release.
