What People are Saying About This
At a time when much of the poetry being published is that of frustration and despair, it is ironic that this clear, positive and even triumphant voice should� come out of the absolute darkness with a message of day-to-day survival which cannot and must not be ignored. Michael Hogan carries the reader past irony to the eye of the storm and past hope to a place of enormous calm and strength. Each of his carefully burnished poems glows with its own inner lightthe light of exile, the light of triumph.
