Uses geology, as a means for exploring what it is we stand on and for - emotionally, psychologically, and politically. The author is interested in what science and its logics have to offer us, and makes a case for the vitality and necessity of other modes for making sense and experiencing meaning in a fragile world, among others.

It isn't long before the ethereal quality of these poems [in "Torn Awake"] begins to remind you of similar effects in the work of T. S. Eliot and the 17th century Anglo-Welsh mystic Henry Vaughan … The voices vary throughout this book's six highly speculative sequences … yet again and again they call from their spectral airiness a single recurring image, an elemental configuration of man, woman and child. Indeed the book ends with a consideration of just such a threesome frozen forever in the aftermath of an earthquake on ancient Cyprus, with the speaker proposing that such a piteous sight can be taken as either a story with no meaning or a meaning beyond story. In the midst of such questioning, the only reality is the poet's unflinchingly curious mind. -- David Kirby The New York Times Book Review Geologic codes, discoveries, plains, and entrances, Forrest Gander's long poems, transforming their language into imagery that bristles with energy. -- Ray Gonzalez The Bloomsbury Review
