One in the Many

( 1 )

Overview

Steeped in the subjects and forms of the Western tradition, Eric LeMay's first book plunges into our humanity's shadowy depths and scales its sublime heights, to explore our existence in this "present time, which is the end of the world." Yet the apocalyptic notes in these poems, plays, and prose pieces harmonize with those of hope, as his singular characters seek out and cling to their reluctant companions: "I think," muses one of the many philosophers who populate this collection, "we may be part of Satan's ...

Overview

Steeped in the subjects and forms of the Western tradition, Eric LeMay's first book plunges into our humanity's shadowy depths and scales its sublime heights, to explore our existence in this "present time, which is the end of the world." Yet the apocalyptic notes in these poems, plays, and prose pieces harmonize with those of hope, as his singular characters seek out and cling to their reluctant companions: "I think," muses one of the many philosophers who populate this collection, "we may be part of Satan's mind, different parts, warfaring parts, but parts all the same." Such difficult unities mark LeMay's work, in which riven voices strive to regain those paradises we have lost. Utterly experimental in its conservatism, The One in The Many reveals in every end a new creation, to be sung in celestial cadences.

Eric LeMay's The One in the Many is an ambitious and exhilarating first book. LeMay boldly stakes out subject matter--philosophy, theology, Nabokov's Lolita--that most debut poets shun for fear of losing their way in a fog of abstractions. LeMay's imagination relishes challenges, and his sophisticated, varied technique, which moves surefootedly between demotic and high language, is equal to all formal demands. The One in the Many reminds us of poetry's unique power to give pleasure and stimulate thought.
