Play Lucretius

Play Lucretius
Ed Barrett
Wet Cement Press, 2024

“Full of brilliant rhythmic immediacy and syntactical arcs, as Ann Lauterbach puts it, these poems are as strikingly clear as they are surprising in their movements. Grounded in a close reading of the mundane and the memorable, they present an easy-going wisdom that sneaks up on you like a wave or a recollection or an unexpected insight. Play Lucretius is, in Charles North’s words, an imaginative, inspiring book.”
