Editorial Reviews


“These are the poems of a poet who takes his obligations seriously—obligations to his world, his family, his intellectual heritage: ‘The longing / in belongings lines up in rows of books, / a thousand titles of how owned I am.’ These highly musical poems, which include a generous helping of superbly crafted sonnets, are beautifully written, smart, and moving—rich in all the rewards poetry offers.”
— Andrew Hudgins

Format: Paperback
Many different people, no matter who they are, prove to be teachers all the same. "Unsettled Accounts" is a collection of poetry from Will Wells as he comes to readers with an array of wisdom and wit as he reflects on the vastly different people of the world. Intriguing work, "Unsettled Accounts" is a worthy addition to any poetry collection. "Feuds": In the faded parlors of Tirolo's two best houses,/the widows still duel at their pianos./Something like Schubert turns the swallows/into notation, circling unresolved./Slugs tryst listlessly to the answering strains of Chopin, waltzing at dirge tempo./High on an outcrop, a castello shakes/its crenelated fist at the tower one ridge over./Stinging nettles defend the granite walls./At each arrow loop, the quick salamander/or the scorpion with barbed tail flexed,/a Gabbiano warrior in chain mail./Under them, the Adige runs to meet its lover,/Isarco, and on to Verona where lovers die.
