Description


Poetry. Who in the world of poetry is like Stephen Kuusisto? I want to give you lines like 'pale geographies of the heart, ' or 'I love the Jesus who lets me stay blind, ' unforgettable words, but no one moment conveys the beauty and austere brilliance of these poems. These are so finely wrought they feel like precious coins in the hand, coins that have been unearthed as much as made. Horses, ravens, dogs haunt these poems, but so do Einstein, Kierkegaard, God. And many others, but above all, we follow Kuusisto, guide who is 'half soul, half body.' These poems announce themselves as perfectly right and necessary, yet like nothing you've seen before.--Susanne Paola Antonetta.
