Editorial Reviews

Review

"Steve Gehrke has delivered up a masterpiece of masterpieces, a book made up entirely of ekphrastic poems which is altogether unsettling, unfamiliar, uncanny, powerful. The secret of Gehrke's method is the force of his gaze, which within the dramatic illusion of such poetry is a stand-in for the mind; in these poems artworks melt under the pressure of the writer's consciousness of them, and products are re-rendered as pure process."
--T. R. Hummer, author of The Infinity Sessions



"The poet manages to create a kind of double-imaging that oscillates between painters and subjects, between lives and painting. . . . Gehrke contributes a verbal resonance, in effect an interior voice . . . to all these reverberating images."--Parnassus

He was also recipient of the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition for the best poem of 2004, The Burning of Parliament, 1834, which is included in this volume.
