First of September
|Author: ||Folks, Jeffrey|
This first collection contains poems focused on social and domestic themes, as well as verse addressed to such traditional topics as the seasonal changes of nature. In tight, sparse stanzas the poems address a laconic voice to the everyday world of social existence. Impinging on the personal realm of the poet, however, is the larger political arena, with its issues of human justice and ethics.
". . . the imagistic style, tone of understatement, telling and evocative images, and modest persona keep steady throughout, and help make for an interesting, honest and moving book." -- Wind Magazine
