Description

“Searched for Text” is a first chapbook collection of poems by a poet alive to the challenges of traditional form, finding ways of expressing themes that are intensely real and many-layered in time, culture and society. His elegies, poems of love and landscape, are uneasily sharp and political. He allows no sentimentality to blur the deep sentiment of his experiences: the American childhood and youth, his growing love of England and his finding places in which to be, always a little uneasily, at home. In “Un Coup de Des” he says: Chance authors all we do, The plot’s contrived in retrospect. Spied once I still look out for you; Chance authors all we do. A sea bird shot, a woman met Ungloving who then strolls from viewAlters to fate as we reflect. Chance authors all we do,The plot’s contrived in retrospect.
