The Color Symphonies Wade Stevenson BlazeVOX [books]

“Thanks for sending “The Color Symphonies,” which I thoroughly enjoyed. It reminds me of Raphael Alberti’s “To Painting”. I’m glad we share a commitment to transport and feeling in poetry."

—Edward Hirsch, Author Of 'Gabriel'  

“This is a visionary work. It’s a torrent, a whirlwind, a symphony of colors. It’s a blazing apocalypse of rainbows, a dazzling setting sun of the material world. Surely it was written in some god-inspired, intoxicated state reflected through the rational mind of a star-struck color scientist. Gulp it, inhale it, or let it whiz by you, like a comet about to be devoured by the sun! Either way you’ll come away dazzled, blinded by the light, perhaps redeemed by the orgasmic beauty of a shared vision.”

—Aloysius Werner

“Your book flows like a wonderful ballet using the colors as movements toward a higher goal. It feels like music all the way through. I thought of Elgar’s Nimrod Variations or Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6. You have all the best parts of poetry mixed into a world that is almost the scope of a novel. I felt a great sense of warmth towards Blue. Symphony is the word for this book.”

—Geoffrey Gatza, Author of Apollo and House of Forgetting

Wade Stevenson was born in New York City in 1945. He is the author of several books of poetry, a memoir “One Time in Paris” and a novel, “The Electric Affinities.”
