Item description for The Persistence of Objects (American Poets Continuum) by Richard Garcia...

In The Persistence of Objects Richard Garcia gives us a poetry rich in the improvisational surrealist tradition while still deeply rooted in the humanist tradition-this is sur-realism with heart. A master of radically inventive humor, Garcia also pays attention to structure and form. A core of love poems threads through the book, often in the form of Spanish-style sonnets. Garcia's poems are rife with surprises and fables that disclose the heart of our humanity with comic irony and tragic poignancy.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Persistence of Objects (American Poets Continuum)?

Best Book of Poetry I've Read in a Long Time  Sep 19, 2007
Richard Garcia's new book of poems is unlike any other that that I've read this year. Garcia has always been a powerful and underappreciated poet, with a visionary and mythic imagination and a strange and wonderful combination of lyrical and narrative pleasures. Part of the pleasure of Garcia is how difficult it is to typecast him as a poet, or to predict how a poem will develop. I think this is because although he gives the reader traditional narrative pleasures of plot and character and theme and extraordinary description, he is not a linear poet. This is not to say that he veers off topic, or that he doesn't develop and think the poem through. Rather, he does so in unexpected ways. A number of his poems are structured in a spiral of ever-widening gyres around a topic, which allows his capacious imagination room for endless riffs and swerves. A terrific book. Buy it!
