How the Wind Calls the Restless
Emily DeYoung, author
'How the Wind Calls the Restless' is a collection of poems written by Emily DeYoung, starting in her teenage years and continuing throughout the transition from adolescence into adulthood. The collection takes on a relatable, internal struggle as a young woman grows restless and resistant to conventionality and conformity. She turns down college offers and chooses instead to backpack around the world. The pieces all contain a certain level of honesty, sometimes taking on darker tones and sometimes more hopeful ones. Emily takes a closer look at humanity and the driving forces behind modern souls. She also examines the beauty and art behind existence and death.
