Rift

Rift

Peter Cole

In its sharp ear for everyday speech and fascination with the realms that lie beneath the surface of ordinary reality, the lyric poetry of Peter Cole elegantly carries forward a powerful American tradition that merges the visionary with the immediacy of direct experience—a lineage carried from Emily Dickinson and W.C. Williams into the broad possibilities of the present. In the long poems and lyrics of this collection, a poignant vision emerges - of Jerusalem, the Bible, Jewish liturgical writing, and of the secular mystery hidden in the Hebrew tradition. Originally published in a special artist’s edition, the much acclaimed Rift presents an original voice of the highest intensity.
