A Testament To Love & Other Losses by Wade Stevenson
|A Testament To Love & Other Losses||Wade Stevenson||BlazeVOX [books]|
The suspicion that writing will be the last utopia is wonderfully fulfilled by the extraordinary promise and quivering present of Wade Stevenson’s lyrical, deep and lustrous oeuvre. Here is a writer of extraordinary adventure and imagination and in this book of poems he portrays the cycles of the human condition recognizable to us all. Lyric in its intensity, evenly paced, the delivery is light and swift, well suited to the tension and humor that are so much a part of this work. The states of being alive, in love, alone, in an embrace, a companion of small animals, and the life of a poet are all explored. The comingling of images is a prominent theme within this book, a doubling of ideas, as a mirror looking at itself to reveal the nakedness of all things.
Wade Stevenson was born in New York City in 1945. He now lives in Buffalo, New York with his wife Lori, his daughter, Annawade, and his three dogs, Toshi, Toulou and Daisy.
