The Elegy Beta


Mischa Willett

Mockingbird Books, 2020 (forthcoming)

The Elegy Beta is the follow-up poetry book to Mischa Willett’s critically-acclaimed debut Phases. It features lyrical ruminations on subjects classical and contemporary, theological and practical, suffused with characteristic candor and wit. The long eponymous poem that anchors the collection is an extended meditation on angels, as a kind of tribute to the poet Rainer Maria Rilke.
