Dancing on Canaan's Ruins 

  Request this author
"Jim Clark's first collection consists of forty-four poems amounting to a spiritual autobiography. The gathering's three sections and coda trace a development comprising a coming of age (In Tennessee), spiritual journeying (Setting Out), and affirmation despite loss and alienation (Dancing on Canaan's Ruins). What Clark affirms, again and again, is the transfiguring power of poetry; the language is arresting and engaging. Dancing on Canaan's Ruins is not a miscellany, either. The forty-four poems do succeed in being one poem, finally, a sustained imaging of a single theme." - Jim Wayne Miller
