In a frantic world, the momentary glimpse can spark a sudden flash of insight. This resonating glimpse-caught on the move-ripples through the mind, illuminating past and present, fast-forwarding in a split second to reveal future possibilities. But in an instant it is gone, lost in the bustle of everyday life. In Glimpses, Brendan Kennelly opens his eyes-and ours-to the world and times we rush through without looking. With their quick fire wit and timeless wisdom, his glimpse-poems are in the tradition of riddles, epigrams, and proverbs. Sublime or profane, joyous or crazily raucous, Kennelly's vivid glimpses have a life of their own, leaping beyond the words used to summon them up on the page. When lightning flashes, the graveyard dances.
