Radius of Light by Joshua Auerbach
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2008
The compacted lyrics of Radius of Light use the tension between uneasy City and restorative Nature to spark your deeper imagination. Joshua Auerbach’s first full-length collection includes poems whose subjects range from odd tattoos, pacing panthers, and oceanic whirlpools, to muted but probing reflections on (often sinister) foreign scenes. Figures close or shift apart, toward joyful light or the opposite. Life in the twenty-first century is illumined. At the heart of this collection shines mystery, alchemy and vision.
