I find a new magic in this English, and a critical sensitivity shaped partly by the more traditional culture with which England and America are presently at odds. The author feels no reluctance to bare his love for the Koran, nor any need to apologize for some astutely angular social commentary. He could be, and therefore in a sense already is, “everybody’s beloved grandson,” rescuing fleeting jewels of delicate nuances from within the frantic rhythms of now, and earning our blessings for an endangered “interiority.”
Here is a poet of no little promise. But read him aloud, in your own rhythm, and let your ears tell you what is true. Mind will gladly surrender judgment.
