Diminishment based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Marc Stone writes smart poetry, poetry that invites you to read again—and again—with new rewards each time. His collection, Diminishment, navigates modern life with the enthusiasm of an adventurer while deftly avoiding cynicism and sentimentality on the journey. Stone’s language is pure jazz—it dizzies the reader in the best ways. At the core, these poems are sharp and the poet’s voice sure, pushing us on until something deep and human emerges. I highly recommend! - Connie Everett, Editor, Pudding Magazine As an editor of a literary journal, I read thousands of poems a year, and sometimes it becomes difficult to distinguish one voice from another. Marc’s voice is an exception. He sees experience through a unique lens, creating images that force our eyes to open to new ways of feeling. His is a language that resonates and makes us want to read more. -Olga Abella, Editor, Bluestem As a poet, we’ve found that Marc Stone is able to convey his extraordinary vision forcefully and poignantly. Now, in Diminishment, we see again how Stone’s mastery of poetic language is striking and moves the reader to contemplation and introspection. His words and themes speak straight to the mind and heart at once. -Robert Lundin, Editor, The Awakenings Review
