The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

By Elizabeth Macaluso

Elizabeth Macaluso's first volume of poetry, The Lighthouse, engages with the Italian American experience; it also explores gender, sexuality, and what it means to be a woman from Long Island. Macaluso captures the experiences of ethnic American women in this lyrical collection. She meditates on history, memory, war, and faith, all subjects germane to contemporary American and global cultures.
