Description - Bavarian Shrine and Other Poems by Eric Ormsby
The poems in this collection, representing work from the decade 1980-1990, range from evocations of common objects, a sea shell or a twisted nail, to explorations of an inner world of memory and imagination. Throughout the collection, there is a tension between things in their unique coherence and the imagination compelled to assimilate them: our seeing is never pure, is never seeing and only seeing.
