Language: English . Brand New Book. Traveling from the rural Midwest and Chicago, his mythic childhood city, to the outposts of Cornwall and far-off Guangzhou, William Olsen searches for the miracle of wholeness in the small details. An urgency inhabits his poems as they lament and protest a pandemic disrespect for all things natural and the replacement of such with material progress. Olsen seeks to make a truly substantial inquiry into human existence, which leads him to test the adequacy of language. Filling his verses with a dazzling language that challenges, transports, questions, and intoxicates, he thus creates a genuine surrealism. His meditations on contemporary life are bleak but fiercely truthful - providing that paradox of literature, the exhilaration of feeling even when reading of the tragic. It is Olsen s distinct awe for our universe that offers hope for retrieving all that is being lost. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780810151062
Critique: "William Olsen's "Trouble Lights" is the kind of book you'll willingly let break your heart because Olsen makes our mortality at once terrible and irresistible. . . . [W]e remember what we come to poetry for . . . the thrill of the alive with all its risks and mercies."--Beckian Fritz Goldberg, author of "Never Be the Horse"
