Divine Attention: Poems
ISBN: 0807119504 Louisiana State Univ Pr. 1995 The theme of surpassing the verbal, the tangible, is reinforced in the collection's arrangement. The opening section explores the physical and psychic shocks we endure as mortals bound to this earth, but as we read, the attention gradually shifts to a search for an antidote to loss, first through the solace of family, history, and the long dead, and finally through willed acts of the imagination.

ISBN: 158654019X Story Line Press. 2002
A novella and two stories by Paulette Roeske.
Winner of the second annual Three Oaks Prize for fiction.
Magda Brummel, the protagonist of the novella, who is devastated by loss, has decided to take a trip to Italy. She is accompanied by a man whom she knows only casually, and their relationship is initially platonic. As the author takes Magda and Harry through stunningly evoked sacred and secular sites throughout Italy, we realize that, for Magda, the trip has become an increasingly urgent pilgrimage, a search for renewal, if not grace.
Paulette Roeske has published four books of poetry. An NEH and Fulbright Fellow, her fiction appeared in Threepenny Review, Georgia Review, and other publications.
