Books Info:

Trace: Poems free pdf His arresting ninth collection of poems, Eric Pankey's "Trace" locates itself at a threshold between faith and doubt--between the visible and the invisible, the say-able and the ineffable, the physical and the metaphysical. Also a map of the poet's journey into a deep depression, these poems confront one man's struggle to overcome depression's smothering weight and presence. And with remarkable clarity and complexity, "Trace" charts the poet's attempt to be inspired, to breathe again, to give breath and life to words. Ever solemn, ever existential, Pankey's poems find us at our most vulnerable, the moment when we as humans--believers and nonbelievers alike--must ultimately pause to question the uncertain fate of our souls.
