About this title


Winner of the Gival Press Poetry Award. “Clifford Bernier’s 'The Silent Art' takes us on a journey through countries, landscapes, musical forms and states of mind. Rivers flow through these places to the beat of conga drums, the wail of an alto sax and the voice of a woman singing scat. To read these poems is to enter a work of expressionist art....”—Judith Valente, correspondent, PBS-TV; co-editor, Twenty Poems to Nourish Your Soul; author of Discovering Moons “Like musicians, poets strive for clarity, originality and perfect pitch. Clifford Bernier’s 'The Silent Art' provides us with a bumper crop of each.... --Reuben Jackson “Clifford Bernier is the consummate performance artist who harmonizes imagery with syncopated language to break through the silence of the page. Make no mistake, 'The Silent Art' is a fullblown concert.”—Karren L. Alenier, author of Gertrude Stein Invents a Jump Early On "...Clifford Bernier's 'The Silent Art' is music as sung poetry; it is poetry arranged as a concerto...."--Cecilia Martinez-Gil, author of Psaltery and Serpentines
