The gorgeously rendered poems and interludes in Tina Barry's Beautiful Raft examine not only the deep complexities of a family but also the interplay between art and society. Beyond Barry's probing portrayal is an examination of the concept of artistic mastery and what it takes to both create and be seen in the world.
