SemibreveeBook - 2015
The poems in this new collection from John F. Deane combine a lyrical grace with a fiercely questing intelligence, pushing against the mysteries of faith in a fractured world, paying tribute to the value of human life and love. Woven throughout the book is a thread of elegy for the poet's brother, who died of cancer in 2010. The collection concludes with a sequence describing a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Throughout, Deane gives poetic voice to the paradox of human existence as simultaneously "blessed and broken."
