Ellen Rosenbloom’s Past Life Recall is about the never-ending process of the self as it shapeshifts and cycles through time and space. Different selves emerge: some famous, some icons, some mythical, some characters from literature and some everyday people.

The sound of words in this collection is important as it lends a soundtrack to the poems. Tightly wound in this process are the echoes and repetitions—a vibrant undercurrent. The styles of old and new mingle together in this unending multi-verse with multiple periods of history skipped by and dotted with shiny flashes of wit and whimsy. The span of centuries to present day is played out, taking the reader, most hopefully, on a journey through lives both past and present.

Ellen Rosenbloom was born on a air force base in Clovis, New Mexico where her father was a surgeon. She has a BS in Fine Art from Skidmore College and an MFA in Creative Writing from the New School. Ellen’s poems and stories have been published in many journals and web sites. She has also published a novel and novella. Ellen works by day as a Copywriter. She lives in New York City with her favorite person, her husband, Adam.
