Gaze : poems by Christopher Howell ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Christopher Howell's haunted and haunting collection, Gaze, is a book of counterpoints, swinging between moments of delicate connection (touching a girl's wrist) and striking brutality (a boy slamming a just-caught fish against a boat's stern to kill it "as he was taught"). Howell explores how our interior and exterior lives are entangled--the past living on inside us as we live inside the physical world that surrounds us--and he reminds us particularly of how loss releases us into the present, how in the process of living, "everybody pays."

There is an ease about Howell's ability to slip out into the amazing and return to the reader, smoking. It is as if the poem were the iridescent overflow of a profoundly abundant imagination. --Tim Barnes. Tangled, fertile, obsessed with time, elegiac, comic, shifty, and always sharply, freshly observant, each syllable carries on a running battle with those who would reduce life to mock-turtle simulations and virtual realities, and each word is stroked on the loom of gratitude for the power of the imagination we are given. --Bill Tremblay
