geo•logics

By (author): Stephen Rowe

Stephen Rowe’s geo•logics—his highly anticipated follow-up to Never More There—binds the impermanent to the permanent. With sustained inquiries into loss and reason, Rowe seeks a motivation capable of accepting pain, and reveals the outlines of our temporary lives backlit by a radiant sense of time’s passage. These poems quietly unearth the symbiotic relationship between landscape and self, capturing our comings and goings in formally graceful and chiselled verse tended by a patient and stoic intelligence. Here, the passing leaves its trace, and the imprint endures within the abiding strength of art.

Reviews

“Stephen Rowe’s geo•logics speaks profoundly and beautifully about our “place” — or, rather, our endemic sense of being somehow “displaced,” that somehow we are not in the right place, we have lost opportunities, or freedoms[…]never has our contemporary version of this spiritual ailment been so originally and eloquently described. “The beauty of Rowe’s language, and the intelligence of his observations place geo•logics among the most meaningful and memorable books I have read for some years.”
