BRETT RUTHERFORD. POEMS FROM PROVIDENCE: 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION.Cover Image

Poems from Providence, a huge compendium of all the poems Rutherford created during his first years in Providence, Rhode Island (1985-88), was published in 1991. This great blossoming of neo-Romantic work was inspired by a change of locale to New England, by H.P. Lovecraft, and a deep immersion in the classical world, yielding the long "Ganymede" cycle, a prequel to The Iliad. Other memorable works in this paperback are "The Outsider," an elegy for Barbara A. Holland, Treblinka's "Ivan the Terrible," "The God's Eye: A Summer Diary" tracing a return to native haunts in Pennsylvania, the cat memorial poems to Thunderpuss, and the first appearance of the now-famous poem, "At Lovecraft's Grave." Illustrated with line-drawings by Pieter Vanderbeck.
To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of this volume, the poet has revised a number of the poems, and added six poems that are centered in or around Providence, including new Lovecraft poems and the Poe Providence mystery narrative poem, "Lucy."
