OTHER REVIEWS AND ARTICLES
NOTE: My essay, "The Future of Poetry in the Twenty-First Century" is not currently available online. I asked it to be removed from the journal that published it due to their inaction in correcting typos in quoted passages from other poets that were not present in the final galleys that I approved. A shortened version of the essay is forthcoming on South 85 Journal's blog, which will also provide a link to the essay I will post on The Widening Spell.
"Watch your step, warns the speaker in "Vortices," one of the gripping poems in Terry Lucas's Dharma Rain. Good advice for approaching Lucas's second full-length collection, for in these poems, everything enters you. From grim realities to wry humor, the poems of Lucas's new book confront the mysteries of science, faith, and desire in exquisite forms, delicious language, and keen intelligence."
— Wendy Barker, author of One Blackbird at a Time
"In his fresh new visions of the world stripped of its former fashions, ideologies, and mythologies, Lucas writes as if he’s observing the world for the first time on his own heuristic terms, in both dexterously formal and free verse."
— Chard deNiord, author of Interstate
My second full-length poetry collection, Dharma Rain, is forthcoming from Saint Julian Press in the fall of 2016.
