Fever: A Sequence Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. The poems in FEVER sweat through the discontents of a love affair, a childhood, a marriage, a malfunctioning farm, the speaker's aging father and his own illness. Dream and the gritty details of life flow together in the hallucinatory and yet grounded language of these short, sharp pieces, which form an integrated sequence with both unity and emotional range. As Philip Terman notes, "Nothing gets through the fish-net of John Repp's observations--at once sensual and smart, traditional and hip, funny and sad." A widely published poet, fiction writer, essayist, and book critic, John Repp teaches at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, works in the Arts-in-Education Program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, leads writing workshops at Stairways Behavioral Health, Inc., and lives in Erie with his wife, the potter and visual artist Katherine Knupp, and their son, Dylan. His recent collections of poetry include No Away, Gratitude, Time to Get Some Things Straight, and White Doe.
