With some 3,000 poems behind her, Arlene Corwin has extended the thematically based book Birth, Death & In Between to Birth, Death & In Between II, the theme repeating it seems, lifelong - repeated, but never repetitive; a book speaking to the variegated worlds of thought and event which start in birth, have a life and end in death. Corwin has gone from the time when there was nothing to say to having poetic opinions, universal, far-reaching and wall-to-wall; matured and maturing in breadth and style as well as years. A musically gifted child, she studied harp, piano and voice, making music her profession, jazz her genre. She graduated from the High School of Music & Art and Hofstra University. She published her first book in 2010 and has published regularly since. Birth, Death & In Between II is her 16th book. Born 1934, Brooklyn, New York, Corwin has spent the last 34 years playing, singing and writing in Sweden.
