Review: Yenser, Blue Guide
Library Journal recently reviewed Stephen Yenser’s Blue Guide. From the review: "Readers encounter the work of a technical virtuoso.… Attentive readers who have high expectations of contemporary poetry will find much to hold their interest."
Inspired by the miraculously mercurial potential of words, Stephen Yenser takes readers on a heady trip through a world full of promise yet compromised by human weakness. Set in sunny southern California and Greece, the poems of Blue Guide cast the shadow of mortality, and the tones are elegiac.
