What does it mean to be a poet's wife, his muse and lover, there for the heights of inspiration and the quotidian of the day-to-day, and often, too, the drudgery of being in a supporting role to 'the great man'? In this exquisite new novel, David Park explores this complicated relationship, through three luminous characters: Catherine Blake, wife of William Blake, nineteenth-century poet, painter and engraver; Nadezhda Mandelstam, wife of Russian poet Osip Mandelstam, who died in a transit camp en route to Siberia during Stalin's rule; and the wife of a fictional contemporary Irish poet, who looks back on her husband's life during the days just after his death. All three women deal with their husbands' fame or notoriety. All three stick by their mates, taking seriously their commitment to the men they married, and to assisting with and preserving their work. And this despite infidelities, despite a singlemindedness at the expense of others, and despite hardship sometimes beyond comprehension. Set across continents and centuries, under wildly different circumstances, these three women exist as a testament to love and to relationships despite the odds. Deeply insightful and beautifully wrought, The Poets' Wives is David Park at his best - a novelist who finds dignity and grace away from the spotlight, and who reminds us that art has the power to restore even the quietest of voices.
