Elizabeth Buckley lives in a small town somewhere in the rural and mountainous Northern California. At the time these poems were first written and submitted, she was in high school. Now well into her college career, she hopes to be a history teacher.
Elizabeth Buckley gathers a collection of poems from the points of view of some of her characters. The Beast, the Hope, and the Only Sun provides snapshots into their development. Written as a high school student, the poems also reflect a journey out of depression, from start to the shining light at the end. Who are the Beast, and the Hope, and who or what is the Sun?
