Poems from Underground | Francis Blessington

People in this story

Francis Blessington, Professor of English

Francis Blessington’s new book of poetry is an inspiring collection of great imagination. Blessington places the ancient side by side with the contemporary, capturing moments that are gone but live on, reflections and refractions of a visual space that seems endless while being held in a moment’s time. Almost every poem lives visually, as an ukiyo-e print sustains the fleeting floating world of solitary events, then anchors the reader with wood, stone, and flesh.
