Item Description...
Don Bogen's latest volume, Luster, takes on everything from bullhorns to the cultivation of olive trees in poems that are sharp-edged and open to surprise. They capture not just things themselves but the essential contexts--history, power, the personal and the social--that give them meaning. The stylistic dexterity and range of approaches here make the book as rich as the world it engages. Luster includes evocations of place and memory, character studies of figures from Coleridge to Tarzan, a verse epistle, and an extended meditation on machines in our daily lives, all within an overarching vision. From racehorses to waterwheels to great cities, Bogen illuminates "things that go," in both their dynamism and their inevitable decay. Luster traces the sheen of human activity that clings to the world around us: imperfect, irrevocably marred by time, but always gleaming.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lustrous  Dec 24, 2006
Any past familiarity with Bogen's work leads one to expect the fineness of craft one would expect from a fine carpenter. Yet, you can't help but be impressed anew when you notice the attention to the quality materials, the honesty in design and the little details like wood-grain pieced together in such a way as to create a kind of internal harmony of motion and design. If you know Bogen's poetry, you know it to possess this quiet elegance and grace. There is too, a balance from word to word. Nothing feels haphazard or thoughtless in this collection. These poems work alongside one another like well-made parts in a well-made machine. They are made with real attention to ear and eye. This collection is as solid as it is lovely.
A thoughtful meditation on the man-made world  Jan 21, 2004
This wonderful new collection from Bogen fills the reader with both wonder and dismay at the creations of man - from poetry and language, train systems, works of art, to citiescapes. His deft touches of humour, especially in the last section on machines, "Things That Go," are welcome among the meditations on the virtues and problems of artifice. Definitely a pleasure to read.
