Desi Di Nardo’s The Plural of Some Things Reviewed in Prairie Fire

Guernica author Desi Di Nardo‘s latest collection, The Plural of Some Things, is reviewed by Roger Knox in the Praire Fire Review of Books.

“Desi Di Nardo’s ecological poetic world extends beyond flora, fauna, and the inanimate to include human and spiritual interconnection,” writes Knox. “These poems contain such powerful experiences that it is difficult to take our leave unaffected by them. We are enlightened by the discovery of a relationship of spiritual empowerment in ‘Poetry on Lake Simcoe,’ intrigued by mystery and the unconscious in ‘The Abstract Night,’ and enticed by sexual rapture in ‘White Rain.’ Whether confronting the dissembling self in ‘Inner Landscapes,’ dealing noncommittally with a parent’s absent love in ‘Forget You Not,’ or expressing emotional repression in ‘Red Spill of Adrenalin,’ the poetry voices summon us to take heed. Meaningful interconnecting amid the surrounding turmoil becomes the most needful and redemptive process of all.”
