Lethal Frequenciesby James Galvin
Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. This fourth collection from the author of the prose masterpiece The Meadow is inspired by the often harsh subrural landscape of southwestern Wyoming where Galvin has spent most of the past decade building a log home, beginning with the felling of trees. Firsthand knowledge of the expansive landscape of the west provides perspective more than mere imagery, reducing human activity to its proper dimension. Galvin adds a kind of pre-Socratic intelligence, a stoical turn of mind, and genuine love of hard physical work to make poems that are direct, spare, compact, and stripped of rhetorical or aesthetic device.
A winner of the National Poetry Series and author of the prose classic, The Meadow (Holt, 1992), James Galvin writes poetry that is inspired by the often harsh sub-rural landscape of southwestern Wyoming where Galvin has spent most of the past decade building a log home.
