Tim Liardet’s The Storm House is a powerful book-length elegy that is both grief-fugue and a moving exploration of family psychodrama. The two parts of the book form a powerful narrative of sorrow and anger; the events recollected in the first part are extended by the virtuoso sonnet-sequence of the second. Liardet generates force and gravity in the ”spring and leap/of energy” that is the creative life owed to the dead.
