A Field Guide to the Heavens
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungFrank X. Gaspar's collection of poems is haunted by the presence of mystics and visionaries: Mohammed, Buddha, St. Paul, Augustine, George Herbert, Emily Dickinson, Blake, Milton, Rilke. "A Field Guide to the Heavens" is punctuated with designs of science, the wondering and rapt observations of the sky made at the eyepiece of a backyard telescope. We come to know Gaspar's city streets, the neighbors and strangers that walk them, the wreckage of past lives, the ocean, the gardens, the orchards and alleys and parking lots, all spread out under the vast sky.
PortraitFrank X. Gaspar is associate professor of English at Long Beach City College, Long Beach, California, and is the author of two books of poems, "The Holyoke" and "Mass for the Grace of a Happy Death." He also recently published his first novel, "Leaving Pico."
