Between the Margins : Shoulder to Shoulder Poetry
Dr. Charles A. Stone challenges the reader with this collection of 40 previously unpublished poems that test the limits of conventional poetry. Using the margins of pages, uncommon arrangement and spacing of words, and introducing for the first time a broad application of fontics, he addresses ordinary subjects in an extraordinary way. In his search for fulfillment as a poet, Dr. Stone has stumbled upon a style that utilizes all the typographic tools at his disposal to create poetry that leaps off the page.
