Poetry. "From his early poems of the San Joaquin through his work as a pacifist/anarchist printer-poet in the war years, the God-haunted poems of Brother Antoninus, the meditative books on Jeffers, the late poems—as fierce as ever, about love, landscape, aging—the body of William Everson's work is the record of a continuously passionate encounter with poetry"—Robert Hass, U.S. Poet Laureate, 1995 - 1997. DARK GOD OF EROS: A WILLIAM EVERSON READER offers, for the first time, a volume of selections from the entire body of Everson's work. Albert Gelpi, an acclaimed literary critic and a personal friend of the poet, has compiled an authoritative selection of poetry, autobiography, interviews, letters, and criticism that opens a window into the life and career of this brilliant and fascinating personality for whom, as Kenneth Rexroth said, "Everything is larger than life with a terrible beauty and pain."
