Fred Herman's sparse, plaintive poems concern both the innocence and ecstasy of love, but a hint of mortality always lurks at the edges. Herman is in a reflective mood in this collection, invoking figures from his past and drawing on the romantic yet lonely imagery of the sea. The directness of his delivery is startling and beautiful in equal measure.
Fred Herman holds B.A. and M.A degrees in English, has lived and studied in Europe and South America, and has taught modern languages in various colleges in an adjunct capacity. Now retired, he lives in Worthington, Ohio, USA, with his wife, Alice, and a rather independent-minded black cat.
