The Soft Blare (Hardcover)
With its astonishing evocation of the interior and exterior landscapes of our visitable world and its dazzling lyrical intensity, The Soft Blare by poet Nick Norwood makes its debut as the third volume selected by Andrew Hudgins for the River City Poetry Series. As Pulitzer Prize winning poet Richard Howard writes, "I must not fail to commend his wonderful mastery of the strictly lyric mode, so rare among his contemporaries. Norwood's poems in this register can actually be sung, indeed they seem to have the music in them already." We could not have said it--or sung it--better ourselves.
