The Pear as One Example: New and Selected Poems, 1984–2008

By Mason Spirit contributor on April 4, 2009

Eric Pankey, Professor, English

Pankey contributes to his previous seven collections with a variety of new, exceptional poems.

A major asset to Pankey’s poems has been his brilliant use of extraordinary language. Throughout The Pear as One Example (Ausable Press, April 2008), he uses the body to discover different elements of the world and how it works. Pankey takes the basic essentials of life and transforms it into a mythical language.
