Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"'[T]hings / hidden remain alive.' Like — and with — Jack Spicer before him, Trevor Calvert helps us to celebrate this notion by bringing light to the lives of hidden things — answers, insects, music, the heart — without ridding them of the veils, the walls, or the hidey-holes to which we're initially drawn. Rarer and More Wonderful is aptly named." Graham Foust

Review:

"Rarer and More Wonderful are the attachments, the combinations, of these poems. Here, language, carved and specific, secures one figure to the next, to its double, or is that a ghost? Perhaps both. And then what appears in the negative space of what happens: 'none of these things / will act as the thing itself that / is soon ending.' So there is a serious struggle here with experience, with being, and then when you least expect it comes the debonair turn, like getting away with wearing period hats. The period? Well, there's no closure, either. Of its moment." Stephanie Young

Synopsis:

Rarer and More Wonderful is a full length book of poetry written by Bay Area author Trevor Calvert.
