Review of The Red Chair by Rachel Hadas

The Red Chair by Rachel Hadas appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of The Virginia Quarterly Review.  There is something haunting, just at the edge of understanding, in this poem, especially when taken in the context of the poet's husband who died or is sick with (the bio was not clear) dementia.  The poem is full of symbols, some clear in meaning, others less so.  Mrs. Hadas creates a magical, if sombre, mood.
