Snow in New York

Snow in New York

by Matthew Brennan

Matthew Brennan's Snow in New York is his sixth full collection of poetry, and it brings together his best poems written during the last forty years. Whether in free verse, blank verse, or rhyme, Brennan's poems betray close attention to form while evoking the senses through concrete images and the imagination through vivid figurative language. His subjects cover family, love and memory, as well as art, history, and landscape. Whether in personal lyrics or in dramatic monologues, Brennan speaks directly, musically, and emotionally. Besides selections from Seeing in the Dark, The Music of Exile, The Sea-Crossing of Saint Brendan, The House with the Mansard Roof, and One Life, this new book includes more than twenty new poems.

Order from any bookstore, local or online. This title is also available from Fleur Fine Books of Galveston, Texas.
