Poetry. TEPHRA is the newest offering from acclaimed art critic and poet Barry Schwabsky. "Barry Schwabsky is a wonderful poet and a poet of wonders. His poetry is exactly as strange as the familiar may permit. His work, born of a strange encounter between American poetry and European masters such as Celan and Novalis, always surprises me by its exploratory investigations. He writes one of the most loving poetries today, filled with a sexual myth as strong as anyone's"--David Shapiro.
