The Hard Edge of Memory by Fred Harris

In this elegant and erudite collection of poetry, author Fred Harris pays homage to the poets who have inspired him. Classical allusions abound and the Muse weaves her sinuous thread through ancient Greece to resonate again in the works of Brodsky, Roethke and Auden - even Calvin Coolidge. Mr. Harris is a man who honors and loves the subtle power of language. In this lyrically evocative work he observes the mystical enigma of cats; eavesdrops on Eve's conversations and reflections; captures the despair that resides in the tan walls of a hospital room.

This is an impressive body of work from a talented writer who disarms and delights the reader with finely crafted verse rich in surprising imagery and provocative ideas.
