Carefully wrought and passionate, Stephan Torre's poetry considers life and work on the edge of wild lands, wrestling with one of the central paradoxes of the human condition: the drive to change and conquer the very wilderness that is the source of sanctuary and spiritual renewal. Wilderness settings permeate Torre's work, from Wyoming's flathead Lake to the south-central coast of California to the spruce forests and subsistence farms of British Columbia's Frazier River Valley. Images evocative of manual labor also abound-axle grease, wood shavings, machinery rusting in abandoned fields- as Torre realizes his themes with unprecedented empathy and lyric intensity.
