X : poems by James Galvin( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

X is a simple gesture and a multiplicty. It is both letter and number, and represents the mathematical unknown as well as the signature by which one is known. It is a palindrome, a location, a cancellation. X is the kiss, the embrace, and the betrayal. In James Galvin's sixth book of poems, X is also the map by which the poet marks new terrain. From the vertigo of solitude Galvin evokes a deep philosophical engagement with interior and exterior landscapes, asking simply, What did I love that made me believe it would last? --Copper Canyon Press

Lethal frequencies by James Galvin( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fourth collection from the author of the prose masterpiece The Meadow is inspired by the often harsh subrural landscape of southwestern Wyoming where Galvin has spent most of the past decade building a log home, beginning with the felling of trees. Firsthand knowledge of the expansive landscape of the west provides perspective more than mere imagery, reducing human activity to its proper dimension. Galvin adds a kind of pre-Socratic intelligence, a stoical turn of mind, and genuine love of hard physical work to make poems that are direct, spare, compact, and stripped of rhetorical or aesthetic device."--Jacket
