"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Edwin Feliu writes poetry that is often approachable but can also be ambiguous as one can appreciate in his latest collection of poems, "The Elastic Dome."
Elusive though some of his poems may be, they reward with each rereading. They also surprise with careful insights on the life experience and unexpected slices of humor. Some of his poems are collages using words or phrases gleaned from other sources and woven into mysterious utterances that seem to emanate from a parallel universe.
Feliu’s poetry is personal and introspective, rich in quirky juxtapositions ( “I think too much of ice, / how it blackens the seed,/ “) and strong visual similes ( “Sunrise holds back/like an awakening eyelid.“ ).
His subject matter is eclectic: a roadblock, a mailbox, typewriters, evening, a wounded boar. Although most of the poems are blank verse, some are written in rhyme.
Feliu speaks with the assured voice of a poet who knows what he wants to say and says it well.
