Summary

Sarah has spent her whole life fighting against her father’s wishes. She doesn’t care about his old beliefs and traditions; she just wants to go to college. Sarah’s determined to do something with her life that doesn’t involve baking pies and being a good wife, and she’s convinced that with enough hard work, she’ll manage it all. That is, until she gets put on a class assignment with Robert Hasting who seems intent on causing trouble in her life in more ways than one. 
Robert is sick of his father telling him what to do and who to date. When he leaves for college, he promises himself that he’s finally going to have some fun. That is, until he meets Sarah. She’s everything that Robert has ever wanted, but can he make her notice him when all she seems to care about is coursework?

    Trailer Park Elegy

    In response to her brother's sudden death, Cornelia Hoogland explores the shift in gravity his dramatic absence creates. Set on the Salish Sea on Vancouver Island's east coast, Trailer Park Elegy reaches back two thousand years to the First Peoples, as well as to the brother whose delight was summers spent at Deep Bay.  
    			 
    Hoogland looks to her child-experiences of death, as well as to literature, chaos theory, dark matter, geological time and the effect of noise pollution on whales. She turns grief round and round, enlarges it, pushes beyond received ideas of closure and grief's stages. Death is not only part of life; the dead assign their unfinished work to the living. Hoogland's narrator puts in the time. Listens. Attends. But the responsibility for connection belongs as much to the dead as to the living.  
    			 
    The book's form, a long poem, provides thematic coherence for the multiple contingencies that disturb the narrator's present. Like keeping balls up in the air, Hoogland expertly catches and tosses, thus sustaining her imaginative energies throughout the book. Here she is, contemplating the cliché that life flashes before the eyes of the dying, or questioning the memories stored in her body like trauma or fat, when suddenly there she is, fifty years earlier, constructing the highway at the accident site. The reader participates in Hoogland's excavations as she leans in, digs up an absurdity, hits a fault line. Similarly, she inquires deeply into her brother's life, listening for what he reveals. Through spare, never-sentimental language, Hoogland's lyric resources are adequate to human loss and suffering. "I see reflected in my daughters' faces / the story my brother animates. / He opens his hands, / shapes a funnel his life / pours through." 
     
    "Part emotional excavation and part memorial, Trailer Park Elegy is a deeply moving meditation on how to be present when "[t]he worst has already happened". Retracing her brother's steps in the wake of his untimely passing, Cornelia Hoogland attends to grief until "the field of his death / becomes my field", and little by little, her brother's life overlaps with her own as a kind of dark matter. An intensely poignant, heart-rending read."

    We are all connected, our lives are framed by relationships we form and we are forever affected by the ripples they create. We feel for others and they feel for us, these are the ties that bind us and the roots that ground us. From birth to death we are all searching for connection and once we find one we are changed. You are not an island, I am not an Island.

    “Shapero writes in an urgent vernacular that flirts, stings, implores and demands with apparent abandon.”—Houston Chronicle 
    “Shapero’s poetics has real-world import for the way we use language to talk about messy things.”—Volta 
    Thought-provoking and sardonically expressive, Shapero is a self-proclaimed “hard child”—unafraid of directly addressing bleakness as she continually asks what it means to be human and to bring new life into the world. Hard Child is musical and argumentative, deadly serious yet tinged with self-parody, evoking the spirit of Plath while remaining entirely its own. 
    From Hot Streak 
    Actually it’s ridiculous to opine on what kindof a dog I would be, were I ever a dog, as I don’tcontain within me half enough life to powera dog. I WOULD BE A DEAD DOG, THAT’SWHAT KIND, ormaybe a mere industrial objectboasting a low-grade animation, some odd beepor flicker, like a dryer or a bulb. So, sure, I couldbe a reluctant bulb, the only one still offering lightin an otherwise burnt-out fixture boltedhard to a row house porch. And all those moths,with no other place to die. Can’t they murderthemselves on someone else?... 
    Natalie Shapero has worked as a civil rights lawyer and is currently Professor of the Practice of Poetry at Tufts University. Her first poetry collection No Object was published in 2013, and her writing has appeared in The Believer, The New Republic, Poetry, and The Progressive. She lives in Massachusetts.
