Poems Of The River Spirit

This book evokes a world utterly specific and individual and, at the same time, the world we all live in: a world both beautiful and ruined.
Lynn Emanuel

The locales of these poems range from the mountains of western Pennsylvania to the Andes, the subjects from memories of Kilwein Guevara’s native Colombia to a New York street scene. What characterizes all of them is precise and surprising language, a brilliance of effect, that establishes him as one of the most original young American poets.
