National Poetry Month: The Fifth and Final Friday
Well, we have reached the last Friday of April. Lucky for me, and National Poetry Month, there were five Fridays this month, and as such, I was able to feature five amazing Presses and a lot of amazing poetry. I do encourage you to explore all of our poetry content, even after this month ends.
For our last poetry spotlight, we will be featuring content from Louisiana State University Press. I was first grabbed by a book of poetry called Cosmos. James Applewhite has “skillfully navigated the world of science through poetry” throughout his career:
“His new book makes no exception, fearlessly exploring time and consciousness in relation to the universe as described by Big Bang cosmology — and as experienced by human beings in the everyday world. Applying experiences from his present-day life as well as a multitude of memories from his childhood to scientific theories of the nature of the universe, the poet engages in a patient but relentless — and finally deeply rewarding — quest for a sense of meaning in a cosmos whose dimensions of space and time defy the human capacity to imagine.”
How can you top a description like that? 31 amazing poems, one book, an amazing poetic experience, all in all. So, as we reach the end of April, and more to may, I suggest that you end your journey thinking about the earth, and all of the poetry in it.
