Poetry. In Frank Stewart's fourth book, poetry has become fundamentally an act of association and correspondence with others, and art is understood as a form of empathy that overcomes history, time, nation and language. Poet Nick Bozanic observes that these are the "deliberate motions of a sensibility seeking not to reveal itself, but to rediscover and renew something precious on the very lip of loss." Sensuously arresting and shot through with a soft, sweet aching, these "lapidary lines move with the skill, finesse, and acuity of a master" -Arthur Sze.
