Item description for Imago by Philip Levine Joseph O. Legaspi...
"...Legaspi, like William Carlos Williams, can find poetry anywhere. And like his mentor Pablo Neruda he seems able to locate the mysterious and the magical in the most common and overlooked objects. It is difficult to overestimate the daring and resourcefulness required to complete successfully this astonishingly original book. I believe this collection of poetry, so rich in the dailyness of the world and what wisdom we can draw from it, is ample evidence that Joseph O. Legaspi has arrived to a place none of his ancestors in life or in poetry have ever journeyed, and we his readers are the richer for it."--Philip Levine

Joseph Legaspi is a brilliant poet already well known within New York City's poetry networks. With Imago, the mainstream finally has an opportunity to also view his haunting, deliriously beautiful words. Though seemingly impossible, Legaspi's work manages to create belonging from dispossession, without ever succumbing to clichéd or naïve statements about of life. With eyes that are compassionate and unconditionally loving, Legaspi creates beauty while showing the volatile, often painful, interplay of our everyday emotions and experiences. Legaspi finds the magic of life wherever he looks. His poetry is a true gift.
