Reviews / Endorsements

"With a blend of power and delicacy, Twenty Shadows scorches the reader. One by one these poems strip away veils until what is laid bare is the grief at the molten core of the poet's life. In a breathless Oriental calm, Stephen Knauth loiters at the edges of his loss-a child, after all-cocking an ear, reaching to retrieve whatever is left unconsumed. The imagery is spare and precise, devoid of the maudlin. . .A magnificent achievement, proof that Resurrection is possible through art."—Richard Selzer

STEPHEN KNAUTH was born in Milwaukee and grew up in Buffalo and Pittsburgh. He now lives in Charlotte, NC with his wife and their two children (a third child, Benjamin, died in 1989 of a childhood cancer). His poetry has appeared in many national journals and two previous books: The Pine Figures and Night-Fishing on Irish Buffalo Creek.
