<b>Mirrors & Windows</b> - The Quicksilver Poetry of Everyday Life
AbstractPoetry slides through everyday life, but is not always visible to the eye, though it runs like quicksilver, and can be glimpsed occasionally in the deep blue shadows as evening appears. At this border between day and night, it is easier to look backward in time. This study of poet Dennis Lee explores how a creative artist can come to rejoice in the power of language and share it, even as senses are numbed by unimaginable public violence.
