Whether Hicok is considering the reflection of human faces in the Vietnam War Memorial or the elements of a “Modern Prototype” factory, he prompts an icy realization that we may have never seen the world as it truly is. But his resilient voice and consistent perspective is neither blaming nor didactic, and ultimately enlightening. From the shadowed corners into which we dare not look clearly, Hicok makes us witness and hero of The Legend of Light.

Editorial Reviews

“Bob Hicok’s poems go out ‘looking for what’s least,’ but they also keep their eye, in these failing days of our century, on the large view, ‘The term used / is megalopolis.’ This vast expanse is his terrain, and the subject he ably studies there is—us, it turns out; or what he calls the ‘heart’s jazz.’ He listens to that music most industriously.”—Albert Goldbarth
