Love and the Soul (Phoenix Poets)

by

Love and the Soul (Phoenix Poets) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Love and the Soul's title poem, a male speaker asks "not to believe/that what lights up the world from within is always the wrong thing" and is answered by a female speaker midway through the book who says "I don't think men and women/are meant to have relationships any more." Between these poles, Williamson's powerful collection explores the enormous burden of expectation that our culture has placed on love and its gifts to the soul.

Synopsis:

Alan Williamson's beautiful Love and the Soul explores the vicissitudes of desire with eloquence and subtlety. Few contemporary poets have dissected either psyche or eros so truthfully, so incisively--and so poignantly.
