Linda Simone "Archeology"

What is love if not a continual dig into the shards, fragments, and moments we collect to make sense of our lives? In "Archeology," author Linda Simone juxtaposes poems based on real archeological finds with poems about a variety of modern-day experiences that serve to reconnect people, both living and dead, and renew family bonds. In the writing of these poems, Simone says she was amazed at what can be learned about love from the unearthing of side-by-side skeletons in an ancient Italian town. Or how easy it is to feel the concern of a prehistoric gatherer when her mate hasn’t returned from the hunt. She was equally surprised to discover that eating a plum or losing sight of a child in a busy store could be the way in to primal feelings and experiences…what makes us human.
