Synopsis

Traveling from the rural Midwest and Chicago to the outposts of Cornwall and Guangzhou, William Olsen searches for the miracle of wholeness in small details. An urgency inhabits his poems as they lament and protest a pandemic disrespect for all things natural and the replacement of such with material progress.

Olsen's substantial inquiry into human existence leads him to test the adequacy of language. His fiercely truthful meditations on contemporary life provide that paradox of literature: the exhilaration of feeling even when reading of the tragic. It is Olsen's distinct awe for our universe that offers hope for retrieving all that is being lost.
