The poems of Ada Limón (The Carrying) explore the large, unavoidable subjects that come with being human: death and loss, art and faith, and the strange, vulnerable miracle of existing in a body. Her writing is precise in its attention to the details of our everyday, intimate, private lives while at the same time being conscious of broader political and social concerns that intersect with those lives.
