Editorial Reviews

Review


"Persephone herself would find fascination...Perre reminds us of thesharp edges that come as part of the love and the anger and theindifference and the sadness that is born of the human condition. Theseare not poems for the faint of heart but for those who choose to liveand love heartily and robustly with their eyes wide open."

- The San Francisco Book Review

"A Confederacy of Joy" is like an intimate  journey of the soul throughthe landscape of the body - Whitman-esque - an auspicious introductionof promise."

- The Letters Journal (UK)

"Like incantations or the lingering lyric of adeparted balladeer, they are the poems written by a new type ofvisionary - one that sees the world but then dares to step back intoit - taking his place once again but now militantly hopeful and armedwith a certain kind of impenitent joy."

"...a luminous work, effusive - and above all, coursing with life."

- David Avigdor Rabin

From the Inside Flap

THE LEGACY POETRY SERIES
Official Selection  2014

Evoking the haunting spectre of Federico García Lorca's duende, this auspicious debut collection hums of a humane music with themes both personal anduniversal. These are the poems of a soul seeking and of one searching.They are the poems of the prodigal - who journeys out eager into theworld and returns having found it once again in shades bucolic,melancholic and buoyant.
One can clearly see in these poems hisancestral bloodline: from Pablo Neruda to Hart Crane and Walt Whitman to Philip Levine. These poems clamour with a sure and pervasive vision.
In fact, these are, in their purest essence, love poems: sometimes solemnas prayers and more often than not, rhapsodic; the love of words, ofplace, of persons past and present and a love for and of a world whichseems always in a miraculous flux between the sacred and profane.

"A Confederacy of Joy" is like an intimate  journey of the soul throughthe landscape of the body - Whitman-esque - an auspicious introductionof promise."

"Like incantations or the lingering lyric of adeparted balladeer, they are the poems written by a new type ofvisionary>> - one that sees the world but then dares to step back intoit - taking his place once again but now militantly hopeful and armedwith a certain kind of impenitent joy."

"...a luminous work, effusive - and above all, coursing with life."
