Poems and Poetry...
The dictionary describes poetry as: literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature.
As an inspiration to both budding and experienced poets, the East Norwalk Association Library is adding several copies of a new books of original poetry to its inventory: “Catch and Other Poems” by Richard M. Levine. This collection has been reviewed as: “Catch and Other Poems forcefully reminds us that the first and foremost power of the imagination is to see. Vividly looking backward or forward, or brilliantly in the present, these poems plunge us into the stuff of life with clarity, depth of feeling and pizzazz.” “Richard Michael Levine has written magazine articles for many national publications, including Harper's, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, New York, The New York Times Magazine, and Esquire, where he wrote a media column and was a contributing writer. He has been an editor or columnist at Newsweek, Saturday Review and others. His bestselling book, Bad Blood: A Family Murder in Marin County, was published by Random House and New American Library and has been translated into several languages. His poems have appeared widely in magazines and anthologies. His latest short story collection is The Man Who Gave Away His Organs.
A native New Yorker, Levine graduated from Wesleyan University, in Middletown, and now lives in California but still retains a particular relationship with East Norwalk.
