Codhill, 2010. First printing. I know of no contemporary poet who is more grounded in a poetics of the metaphysical than Frederick Bauman. He is obviously a poet of great erudition with a deep sense of the traditions of poetry, ranging from the archaic and classical poetries to such “modern” poets as Walt Whitman or Basil Bunting. His sense and awareness of nature in all its grand sweep from the micro cosmos to the macro cosmos inform his poetics, which might also be a poetics of the body both corporal and spiritual. —From the Preface by Ivan Arguelles.
