Item description for Jonesing for Byzantium by Ward Abel L....

The poems in Jonesing For Byzantium are loosely combined into an ode to the Piedmont skree, both human and natural, that inhabits the countryside in Georgia (USA): the dark and the light; the reds and greens; the living and dead. These pieces attempt to communicate how the remoteness of the rural American South ultimately relates to the outer and inner realms of the poet and reader alike. Like the world, this poet's home is in a state of constant change now, as the landscape is no longer isolated nor as simple as 'agriculture' and 'shoulder-room.'

Reviews - What do customers think about Jonesing for Byzantium?

A Poetry Masterclass   Jul 13, 2007
There is a sublimity and smoothness to many of the poems in 'Jonesing' which would appear to take years to master, but Abel makes the sonics and skill of poetics look easy. He's obviously a songwriter as his biography states. Beautiful overtures are heard throughout this collection which evoke the American South and the extraordinary discovered in the ordinary.

There were too many favourites, but here's the first stanza of one of them:

'So you,
this is you
virtual now,
a figure where woods
thin to open-ness,
silhouetted at first
then clearer.

(So You This Is You)
