Editorial Reviews

With precision and tenderness, Jarman explores the sinew and soul of humankind."-Publishers Weekly"In Mark Jarman's considerable new collection... [the poems] very often trace similar paths of thought and experience toward freedom, light, truth, and love."-Booklist"To the extent that any poet is really able to choose an authentic voice, the characteristic modesty of Jarman's style seems cultivated-not as an affectation or an aesthetic stance, but as a strategy for sidling up on elusive, fleeting states of mind and exploring their reconciliation with the material weight of everyday experience... . Although Jarman writes powerfully about great spiritual questions, some of his most moving poems stay rooted entirely in a felt moment or a humble image."Chapter 16"Focusing on questions of faith and loss of faith, [Jarman] is able to enter with a quiet, unjudging sympathy into the conflicts of a wide variety of perspectives, presenting their denials and affirmations as the testimony of what it means to be spiritually alive. The poems enact an openness that is particularly welcome in a time like ours of strident contention."-Carl Dennis "With precision and tenderness, Jarman explores the sinew and soul of humankind." - Publishers Weekly"In Mark Jarman's considerable new collection...
