Paul Cummins, a renowned educator and social justice activist, entered the world of poetry in 1966 while writing a doctoral dissertation on the poetry of two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Richard Wilbur at USC. This book, selected from the nearly 600 poems written between 1966-2017, offers a clear and often inspiring voice with brilliant and sacred imagery. This volume includes sonnets, prose poems, odes as well as various metered, and stanzaic poems.
