Poetry. "In this collection of poetry, MAPPING THE FOURTH DIMENSION, Laura Davies Foley meditates upon the death of a significant love with poems that are dreamy and ecstatic. Fused with the terrible knowledge that comes only with direct experience she writes: 'I knew then what Dido must have known at her fiery end.' Using direct plain language she invites the reader into her world of loss, which is simultaneously, a world suffused with hope"--Jackson Wheeler, Founder of The Ventura Poetry Festival.
