The Hope of the Air

by

The Hope of the Air Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

An extensive collection of recent work by a poet who ranges widely in themes and techniques, The Hope of the Air offers a cornucopia of heart-felt insight, meditation, and celebration as it evokes a life on the contemporary scene observed with humor, perception, and brilliant invention.

     Spacks’ latest work is concerned with the crystallization of emotion in words, with new angles of vantage that allow feelings to shimmer and deepen as the record of immediate experience lilts and takes unexpected turns on the Dickinsonian "slant" toward larger meanings.
