Summary

This is a posthumous collection of poems. Though Axel Soestmeyer did not live to see the poems into print, this edition Chr(45) faithful to his intentions Chr(45) makes public the complex expression of an emotional thinker and intelligent lover. His mastery of vocabulary and the liberties he took with syntax and rhythm permit him to control a vital inspiration that could easily have slipped into vulgarity. Axel Soestmeyer assigns to the sexual and the spiritual similar roles, revealing not the facile moral solution of conformism but an understanding of the savage stuff which constitutes the human and his relationship to others and, ultimately, to God. {Guernica Editions}
