Warren Stevenson

Serpent Upon a Rockpreviousnext Ekstasis Editions

Witty and sly, the poems in Serpent upon a Rock have a wonderful organic sensibility that combines both ancient and modern voices. With a twist of phrase the poems can transport a reader from ordinary moments in life to ancient Greece or to a celebration of the solstice with William Blake.
