Item Description...
Donald Revell's new work, Arcady, draws its inspiration from Charles Ives and Henry David Thoreau to create a distinctly American poetic music. Triggered by a series of deaths in the poet's intimate circle, anchored in the deserts of the Spring Mountains of Nevada, this book is nonetheless replete with lush, still moments. Many of the poems begin as meditations on loss and then transform themselves, thanks to the poet's awareness of the spaciousness and openness of the void following grief. The attention to rhythm and the exploration of seen and unseen worlds lead the poet to find solace in the earthly rhythms of seasons' passage and seasonal rituals. Revell's sparse, experimental lines are soundings within which the music of language harnesses us to the present and its infinite resonance. Like Ives's notion of music heard through and against other music, Revell's words and images well up against each other and a profound language of images, meter and rhythm emerges.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A unique anthology of brief, free-verse poetry  May 11, 2002
Arcady is a unique anthology of brief, free-verse poetry by Donald Revell that borrows inspiration from Charles Ives and Henry David Thoreau to create an American feel to its style, which mourns death yet embraces the natural splendor of the deserts of the Spring Mountains of Nevada. A moving, thoughtful selection that leads the reader to ponder and open oneself to what lies beyond death and grief. Nature A Corner For Me: Nature a corner for me/There will be no room/For my portrait//Besides I have seen/Enough people and horses/And extraordinary fish//.To dream like this/Was worth the trouble/Getting here//My other ideas/Seem premature/Like ghosts now//The most beautiful star/Is crossing me
