Field Light by Owen Lewis is reviewed by Dr. Robert C. Abrams M.D.
“At the heart of Owen Lewis’ latest collection of poems, Field Light, is the story of a middle-aged man at a multi-focal impasse—emotional, temporal, marital, professional. That man is Lewis himself, who finds himself unable to move beyond a crucial juncture in his life. The first image in the book fittingly evokes a mood of paralysis and loneliness, featuring a long, slow train at a village crossing, a train unable to advance swiftly:
and take him where he
needs to go. A lone driver stopped
in his auto.”
