Book Description

July 2004 1595390073 978-1595390073
Poetry. "Philip Terman is a poet of great compassion, one whose poems combine humor, tenderness, melancholy, passion and intelligence in a strong and lovely mix. His new book is full of the sense of what it means to be fully human and fully alive. Terman pays attention to things large and small, to family and memory, gardens and history, children and the elderly. The question he seems to be asking, in poem after poem, is, How can one best live this life? These are unabashed poems of love for a complicated universe"--Liz Rosenberg.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Philip Terman is a poet of great compassion,...these are unabashed poems of love for a complicated universe." -- Liz Rosenberg

"The speaker...absorbs particulars of the human struggle...and records it with the empathy of a saint or a mystic." -- Leslie Ullman, Poetry, on The House of Sages

"There's sensual grace informing these poems--sensuous, loving, celebration of the ordinary human and natural miracles of existence." -- Eamon Grennan
