About the Book
In his second volume, Larry Levy celebrates poetic creation with a variety of traditional and modern forms of verse. He deliberates about Art, Beauty, Love, Justice, Immortality and God, and finds consolation in the precise ordering of words on a page. As he says, “And when God gives such a generous knack/To the fortunate who worship and pray/For the aesthetic to come their way/It is only fair to give something back.” His catharsis becomes the reader's catharsis. And for those who demand meaning and substance from their poetry, “The Catharsis of Form” is a worthy example.
