about this item

A poetic study of the eternal, T. R. Hummer’s new collection Eon, as with the other volumes in this trilogy—Ephemeron and Skandalon—offers meditations on the brief arc of our existence, death, and beyond. With vivid, corporeal imagery and metaphysical flourishes, the poet explores how the dead influence the ways we understand ourselves. Anchored with a series of poems that can be read as extended epitaphs, the collection closes with a gesture toward the redemptive power of love. In the tradition of Rainer Maria Rilke, Emily Dickinson, and Philip Levine, Eon shows us the power of being “simple expressions of our earth. It imagined us, / And was imagined by something nameless in return.”
