Poetry. In his third collection, THE LATITUDE OF A MERCY, Stefan Lovasik offers a testament of unflinching immediacy, conflicted sensitivity, and lyric grace—poem after poem, wise without presumption, pared down to a breed of silent speech, the stubborn legacy of what must be said and all that never can. Lovasik brings into striking focus the landscape of war, the lasting physical, moral and psychological consequences of it, and the resilience of the human spirit. THE LATITUDE OF A MERCY is a timeless, deeply moving and luminous book.
