Intimations of the Shapes of Things

by Harvey Stanbrough
     
 

A poetry collection in the lineage of Frost, Yeats Nemerov and other writers of blank verse. Dr. Joseph S. Salemi, nationally known poet and critic, wrote, "This isn't the sort of Milquetoast treacle-and-cream you're going to hear at a West Chester reading. There's real anger in those lines, not just an urge to network. These poems don't provide the nice warm glow

Overview

A poetry collection in the lineage of Frost, Yeats Nemerov and other writers of blank verse. Dr. Joseph S. Salemi, nationally known poet and critic, wrote, "This isn't the sort of Milquetoast treacle-and-cream you're going to hear at a West Chester reading. There's real anger in those lines, not just an urge to network. These poems don't provide the nice warm glow of vague moral uplift that one gets from a Unitarian sermon or a sensitivity seminar. Stanbrough makes it clear that real poetry is a lot more threatening than that."

Meet the Author

Harvey Stanbrough is an award-winning writer and poet. He’s fond of saying he was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas, and baked in Arizona. After 21 years in the US Marine Corps, he managed to sneak up on a BA degree at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales in 1996. Because he is unable to do otherwise, he splits his writing personality among four personas: Gervasio Arrancado writes magic realism; Nicolas Z “Nick” Porter writes spare, descriptive, Hemingway-style fiction; and Eric Stringer writes the fiction of an unapologetic neurotic. Harvey writes whatever they leave to him. You can see their full bios at HEStanbrough.com.
