Down and Up: Poems

Paperback

Price: $19.95

Overview

In Down and Up, Clarence Major makes use of American and European public places, their character and voice, to construct poems that explore the physical world juxtaposed sharply with the inner world. Sometimes realistic, sometimes dreamlike, these poems are dynamic, universal in theme, and acknowledge a debt to the great tradition of modern American poetry. Clear eyed and painterly, they explore wherever Major’s fancy takes him. His distinctive voice and compelling spatial and visual approach offer a connection between everyday human occurrences and the physical space they surround.

Reviews
Clarence Major has written a collection of poetry that celebrates being human. Small moments expand into treatises of love and doubt, life and art, and it all seems so natural. Here's a poet who has mastered a language he owns through personal rhythm, and he knows what it takes to transcend. Down and Up is shaped under the pressure of living and dreaming with one's eyes opened.–Yusef Komunyakaa "author of The Chameleon Couch "
