BeschreibungChristopher Buckley's new collection is a brilliant expression of philosophy and feeling. Throughout Star Apocrypha, Buckley relentlessly questions the metaphysics of life in the heavens and on earth. These poems bear the beauty and weight of big questions and dazzling language. Yet there is also a real life woven into the fabric of the book, a deep melancholy over the loss of a father and the indifference of the cosmos to our inquiries. In Star Apocrypha, Buckley exposes both physical and inner landscapes with wit and high-pitched intelligence.
