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.
