Anaphora by Kevin Goodan in Seattle Book Review

My latest book review is of Kevin Goodan’s newest poetry collection Anaphora in the Seattle Book Review:

Kevin Goodan’s work is always quiet and meditative creating a kind American metaphysical poetry. His latest collection, Anaphora, takes its name from a rhetorical device where phrases are repeated at the beginning of lines creating a ritualistic effect. However, Goodan doesn’t simply deploy the literary device but embeds in his poems recurrences of not just word but of thought and deed.
