Paraph of Bone & Other Kinds of Blue
To have found Ed Pavlicís Paraph of Bone & Other Kinds of Blue gave this judge an infusion of hope. Itís a fully conceived book, speaking as a whole from the first lines to the last. What is in here belongs here, and what is in here in consciously shaped. Mr. Pavlic has listened closely to our most profound American art, the blues and jazz, and that music has not only helped him achieve poetic form but allowed him to explore a mesh of experience extraneous to literary theories. He is, doubtless, aware of such theories, but the voices in his poems flow from a denser space, having penetrated a denser reality, returning via the imagination and its many discontents.
