The creative nonfiction pieces weโ€™ve chosen for this Spring issue are about pain, they are about grief, and they are, in a strange way, about rebirth. The sudden death of a mother, a woman interviewing grieving families about the unimaginable deaths of their children, a man struggling with his boy hood role in the death of other creatures, and a woman channeling the pain of others: all of these pieces are rooted in death, destruction, and grief. But I can also say that I found the pieces hopeful, because the pieces were about confronting pain, and embracing the growth that comes with it. Perhaps they are, as the poet Gerard Manley Hopkins told us, struggling with the โ€œI can no more,โ€ and finding your way, however painfully, to the โ€œI can/Can something, hope, wish day come, not choose not to be.โ€ Even as we grieve and struggle with these writers, we rejoice in their honesty and their bravery. Please enjoy our selections for the 2019 Spring Creative Nonfiction portion of The Citron Review. Nathan R.
