R. T. Smith
"Smith carries the reader into his Irish poems in so persuasive and dramatic a manner that he or she becomes particularly informed and can only view the subject the human experience in Ireland with sympathetic eyes."
R. T. Smith’s poems and their vision of nature have impressed readers for many years. In this, his latest book of poetry, he has so hones that vision that even the palest of urbanities might appreciate the philosophy his poems espouse. Too, in this collection, Smith tills another theme familiar to his readers: American history. His poetic eulogies for Crockett, Chief Osceola, General Lee, and Geronimo are stunning for the individualized emotions they convey. Lastly, in this work Smith pays regards to Ireland, where he has resided for two past summers.
