Reverent, reverberant, The Bellfounder is both augury and echo, uniting the medieval and the modern in a theological soundscape shaped by Dante's Divine Comedy, the films of Tarkovsky, and the music of Arvo Pärt. These poems, lyric intercessions to an absconded God, herald a remarkable new voice in American poetry.
“The Bellfounder is a contemplative exploration of space and attraction, while at the same time it bridges the spiritual with the environmental.”
