Item description for Splendor (American Poets Continuum) by Steve Kronen...

Steve Kronen's poems explore the hardships that daily challenge the human heart. Some of the poems in Splendor focus on our inescapable vulnerability due to aging or accident. Splendor also includes love poems to the author's wife and daughter. Many of the poems are rhymed and metered and use formal elements such as sonnets, villanelles, a sestina, a Dantean canzone, nonce forms, and others.

Steve Kronen's first book, Empirical Evidence (1992), won the Contemporary Poetry Series Competition. Poems from Splendor have appeared in Poetry, The New Republic, The New Criterion, The Paris Review, Ploughshares, Agni, The Georgia Review, and elsewhere.

Reviews - What do customers think about Splendor (American Poets Continuum)?

Poems that move  Sep 10, 2006
I cannot honestly claim to recognize metered and formal elements; I can, however, recognize craft: words that fit well and allusions hidden and yet clear. Steve has produced a very satisfying piece of work. He is a careful wordsmith. And Splendor is his very enjoyable product.
A self-assured and engaging collection. Highly recommended.  Jun 26, 2006
Splendor is a very fine collection by contemporary poet Steve Kronen. Kronen's earlier collection, Empirical Evidence, now out of print I believe, was the work of a younger man; the poetic skills and command of language were much in evidence, but as good as it was, Splendor is better still. His refined and concise choice of words make manifest a poet who has attained maturity without angst or regret. The poems possess a contemplative passion and clarity of sight that, for me, exemplify the poetic (and artistic) impulse to communicate. Kronen's success in this book derives from his revealing of the personal without succumbing to the confessional.
