Poetry. QUESTIONS/PLACES/VOICES/SEASONS continues and expands the innovative meditational poetry Norman Fischer has explored in earlier books, such as SLOWLY BUT DEARLY, SUCCESS, and I WAS BLOWN BACK. The two long serial poems that anchor QUESTIONS/PLACES/VOICES/SEASONS, "Charlotte's Way" and "Seasons," will feel quite familiar to Fischer's many readers. But he also inaugurates a new form of writing in this new book in which he inhabits the voices of others, such as Alberto Caeiro, Reb Yosl of Kemenetz, Elena Rivera, and Saigyo Hoshi. The combination of these distinct forms of writing create a compelling new addition to Fischer's already impressive body of work.
