Summary (From the publisher):

Second Language is the fourth volume of work from the highly acclaimed poet Lisel Mueller. The second language of the title, English, supplanted Muellerís native language when she came to the United States from Hitlerís Germany at age fifteen. But other second languages are at work here as well. The poems in this collection have to do with memory and metaphor, two forces that enable us to interpret our experience. Each is in a sense a second language, and in Muellerís employ each gains expression in an imaginative and humanistic voice.
