In The Persistence of Objects Richard Garcia gives us a poetry rich in the improvisational surrealist tradition while still deeply rooted in the humanist tradition-this is sur-realism with heart. A master of radically inventive humor, Garcia also pays attention to structure and form. A core of love poems threads through the book, often in the form of Spanish-style sonnets. Garcia's poems are rife with surprises and fables that disclose the heart of our humanity with comic irony and tragic poignancy.
