Beschreibung

In his third book of poetry, Edgar Gabriel Silex explores the ways love confronts us. Devastatingly honest, these poems begin with "children transported in confusions of love" and examine relationships within the family and with lovers, and "how our love, for our most precious things, is soiled with our shameful behaviors, by our acceptance of doubt and melancholia."The general movement of the poems is affirmative, traveling from pain of childhood trauma through understanding to the point where the narrator is able to break the cycle of violence and conclude "we will remember / everything in beauty."Edgar Silex comments that he "writes poetry because he believes that a state of grace is our ultimate human condition, forgiveness is our highest form of love, awe is our only muse, suffering is our path to salvation, beauty is our only reward, displacement is our human inheritance, passion is our only freedom, restraint is our act of kindness, solitude is our wisest friend, simplicity is our most complex desire, reverence is our highest achievement, and poetry is our most constant state." Mr. Silex has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and from the Maryland State Council for the Arts. He is the author of Through All the Displacements. He lives in Laurel, Maryland and teaches at St. Mary's College of Maryland.
