Summary

The Difference Between is a collection of 66 poems that invite comparisons between seemingly disparate words, ideas, or things. Sparked by the poem "The Importance of the Whale in the Field of Iris" by Pattiann Rogers, this series similarly pairs and juxtaposes to create surprising parallels and previously unimagined relationships. While most these poems start with the anaphora, "The Difference Between," by the end of the book it's clear that this is as much a confirmation of our interconnectedness, an exploration of what Whitman calls the "vast similitude" that spans, holds, and encloses everything.

    As the phoenix emerges from its ashes, Zebian emerges ablaze in these pages, not only as a survivor of abuse, but as a teacher and healer for all those who have struggled to understand, reclaim, and rise above a history of pain. The book is divided into six chapters, and six stages of healing: Falling, Burning to Ashes, Sparks of Phoenix, Rising, Soaring, and finally, A New Chapter, which demonstrates a healthy response to new love as the result of authentic healing. With her characteristic vulnerability, courage, and softness, Zebian seeks to empower those who have been made to feel ashamed, silenced, or afraid; she urges them, through gentle advice and personal revelation, to raise their voices, rise up, and soar.

    What are you hiding behind your smile? If those empty bottles that line the walls of your room could speak, what tales would they spill? So much of your truth is buried beneath the lies you tell yourself. There’s a need to scream to the moon; there’s this urge to go out into the darkness of the night to purge. There are so many stories living inside your soul, you just want the opportunity to tell them. And when you can’t find the will to express what lives within your heart, these words will give you peace. These words will set you free.

    Mary Anne Evans was born in 1819.  Her Father did not consider her a great beauty and thought her chances of marriage were slim.  He therefore invested in her education.  By 1850 she had moved to London to work at the Westminster Review where she published many articles and essays.  Her view on literature had taken some time to coalescence but with the publication of parts of &quote;Scenes From A Clerical Life&quote; in 1858  she knew she wanted to be a novelist and as her 1856 titled essay &quote;Silly Novels by Lady Novelists&quote; stated not a 'silly woman's one at that.  Success of course meant that her real name came out but it seemed not to affect how the public devoured her novels.   Here, we look with a keen eye at her poetry.  Although slim in number she is able to take a situation, scene or thought and bring us into its world with undeniable care.   Many of these titles are on our audiobook version which can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores.
