By: Thabit Jones, Peter

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Merrick, New York, USA, Cross-Cultural Communications: 2011

Edition: First

Seller ID: CCC976.1


"I love the poems' clarity of vision, this genuflecting before a life-affirming experience, part of the web-work of a world, so much in its purity, like that of the very dawn of Creation. The poems vary, both in length and in prosody, yet always with Peter's dual vision and sensibility: 'The man on Big Sur [observing] with the eyes of maturity, but [feeling] with the open heart of the boy on Kilvey.'" --Vince Clemente, from the Introduction View more info
