Shouldering Infinity: Poems

By Gerardeen Madridejos Santiago

Poetry | eBook

Gerardeen Santiago's debut collection of 27 poems is varied and ambitious. Her poetry contains vivid imagery, resounds with lyricism, and is richly layered with allusions. Her writing draws upon her love of literature, experience of culture shock in moving to America from the Philippines as a child, and her scientific background. While the collection is anchored in the deeply personal theme of life-transition, the poetry ranges from serious examination of life’s regrets to joyful celebration of inspiration -- and even epic-fantasy!

Editor and publisher of the Magee Park Poets Anthology, Gerardeen started writing poetry in August 2015, after reading Pascal Mercier's novel Night Train to Lisbon. She published her first collection of poems, Shouldering Infinity, in May 2016. Gerardeen holds a Ph.D. in experimental psychology (neuroscience) from Columbia University and has a background in educational publishing and medical education.
