9780978997410: The Alchemy of Words

In the tradition of the alchemists of the Middle Ages, this poet searches for the precise words that will transmute common experience into golden language that will shed light on why we live the way we do. He achieves this goal by casting his keen eye and ear over a broad palette--from literature to religion, philosophy, education and, of course, to magic, which is so essential to the "art" and, yes, the science of alchemy. His poems flow across the landscape of thought: from the terrifying kudzu vine to John the Baptist waiting for Christ to sitting in the gaze of the Man of Tao. Without coming off as scholarly, the poet manages to face the vital issues of language bravely.
