Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. This second volume of William Everson's Collected Poems includes five books, as well as a selection of uncollected and previously unpublished poems. Albert Gelpi, of Stanford University, has commented that "if T.S. Eliot is the most important religious poet in English in the first half of the twentieth century, Everson/Antoninus is the most important religious poet of the second half of the twentieth century." In his 1978 preface to "The Veritable Years," Everson wrote, "The second part, from my mid-thirties to my fifties, was dominated by God, and stands in antithetical relationship to the first. I have called this work of this period "The Veritable Years" because it represents a man's attempt to break the residual power of the past, achieve union with a metaphysical Absolute possessing intrinsic veritability on its own terms, beyond the power of process." Includes a bibliography, chronology and index.

Book News Annotation:

Also known as Brother Antoninus after his entry into the Dominican Order in 1951 (which he later left), Everson (1912-1994) was a poet who wrote passionately and prolifically about his philosophical and spiritual struggle to come to terms with himself, God, and nature. This volume comprises the second of three volumes of collected poems.
