Selected And New Poems
Charles Hanzlicek's The Cave: Selected and New Poems, is poetry with an intuitive feel for the world of seas and high meadows, for hawks, lizards, people, and places filled with what poet James Wright once called "the genius of place.' These luminous, ruminative poems speak to us as directly as fresh wind with the power to measure human endeavor, communal aspiration, and individual despair. These are welcome, memorable poems, courage-built and always crafty, funny and wry, and deeply loving. Who could want more?
