Poetry. LGBT Studies. "With an enormous sense of hope checked by doubt fit to match it, Evan Kennedy demonstrates the heroic in a contemporary landscape. Not only are the proportions somehow believable (huge demands in manageable measure), but the sounds stir us up, into our own desire for said demands. In TERRA FIRMAMENT, a protagonist, Evan Kennedy, crawls, walks, and cycles epic, older English—earled, royal lex for the basic route—in search of a paradise: 'to make a peaceable kingdom, or a peaceable mixer.' Here, searching and making are both necessary strategies toward that paradise. Going rogue, evoking an alternate order, both sacred and secular, bestial and saintly, Evan calls for community in the service of or in cahoots with an evolution; one that begins nearest oneself and moves outward to include many others. And this is all to take place on earth, on the actual land we stand on. It's happening presently."—Brett Price
