Illusion of an Overwhelm Paperback – Import, 1 Apr 2017
Special offers and product promotions
I love the poems in Illusion of an Overwhelm for their beauty and wildness, Amen's willingness to push language to its edge, offering new insights and meanings in surprisingly new ways. Reminiscent to me of the Whitman, Crane, Ginsberg lineage of American poetry, especially in Amen's deeply satisfying marriage of the physical world and the metaphysical one, and his embrace of a wide-ranging diction, these poems have a freshness to them, and at the same time seem abundantly necessary for our particularly troubled times. Read this book. More than once.
