Rate this:
George Bowering has always maintained that his poems are germinated in secret ways - secrets he has, until now, assiduously kept to himself. In suddenly giving most of those secrets away, Vermeer's Light constitutes an extraordinary gesture of generosity from a poet to his readership. Its alphabet series A, You're Adorable, by Ellen Field, a pseudonym Bowering often used; Imaginary Poems for AMB, addressed to his late wife Angela; He Is Not, a micro-translation of Shelley's Adonais; Q&A, which dares to take on the most fundamental questions of the human condition with level-headed honesty and wit - the list of revelations and the pyrotechnics of Bowering's craft presented here are spellbinding.
