"Pelican Tracks "is a book of poems with a homing instinct. Elton Glaser travels a restless circuit between his native Louisiana and his adopted home of Ohio, from the "spice and license of the lowlands" to the "streets of Akron cobbled in ice." These reflections, leavened with a fierce wit and moving bravura of language, are extracted from the origins and ends of the poet's life--his birth in the final spasms of the second World War, the fears and excitements of youth, the death of parents, and the unexpected losses of adulthood. Marking his tracks between the Pelican State and the Buckeye State, Glaser records the damaged beauty of "everything sinking, everything rising again in the mind." ""


Elton Glaser, a native of New Orleans, is Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Akron and editor of the Akron Series in Poetry. He has published four full-length collections of poems: Relics, Tropical Depressions, Color Photographs of the Ruins, and Winter Amnesties. His poems have appeared in the 1995, 1997, and 2000 editions of The Best American Poetry and Scanning the Century: The Penguin Book of the Twentieth Century in Poetry. He coedited, with William Greenway, I Have My Own Song for It: Modern Poems of Ohio.
