by David Kaczynski

 

"At the time I began writing poetry, in summer of 1996, I felt like a divided soul. On the one hand, I was given a public image as the Unabomber's good and responsible brother. On the other, I endured a personal crisis as I watched my family and my world come apart.

"The process of writing poetry is my attempt to reclaim and reintegrate (and also to question) my sense of who I was and am, to connect in some way the inward-facing and outward-facing aspects that presumably are needed to make a "whole" person. In most public discourse, blocks of meaning are presented and accepted with little questioning. But in a poem, everything is up for grabs. Poets do not aim to fill space but rather to discover it -- to uncover a world that is less determined, more open and alive.

"The poems in this book are an attempt to trace a spiritual journey across such a landscape from loss to affirmation."

-- David Kaczynski

Review:
The book is gorgeous, in the best sense of the word. The cover is so handsome, and of course the poems so modestly powerful, so personal and yet so universal. I especially like the person who shines through them, thoughtful, observant, tender toward the world's incredible presence expanding slowly from its past into the emergant future, hidden but foretold.
