Poetry. "Sometimes an artist's work distills into its purest concentrate. Such is the case in Leonard Schwartz's magnificent new collection, EAR AND ETHOS. At the heart of these often witty poems is a fierce protest of 'the Occupation' ('Am I at home or in exile? All of us are living in Baghdad now' ['War Poem']), but there is also a tender, brilliant music: 'Born of a love with no past / a city speaks within us / in unexpected journeys, / wine-dark dictionaries / foaming with words and opacities' (these lines from the tour de force central long poem, 'Six Ways Two Places At Once'). In ruminating throughout the volume on Rumi, Schwartz offers a meeting ground. 'Blessed are they that mourn, ' writes H.D., for it sharpens 'the inner perceptions.' This insight is so true of EAR AND ETHOS, which deftly, bravely steps into greatness" Cynthia Hogue."show more
