Summary

From the award-winning poet behind Owl of Minerva, a collection of poems exploring themes of faith, memory, and meaning.His arresting ninth collection of poems, Eric Pankey’s Trace locates itself at a threshold between faith and doubt—between the visible and the invisible, the say-able and the ineffable, the physical and the metaphysical. Also a map of the poet’s journey into a deep depression, these poems confront one man’s struggle to overcome depression’s smothering weight and presence. And with remarkable clarity and complexity, Trace charts the poet’s attempt to be inspired, to breathe again, to give breath and life to words. Ever solemn, ever existential, Pankey’s poems find us at our most vulnerable, the moment when we as humans—believers and nonbelievers alike—must ultimately pause to question the uncertain fate of our souls. “Pankey’s language is beautiful and spare and he constantly surprises with profound lines. Pankey’s built a name for himself, and considering the quality of the poems in this collection, it’s no surprise.”—C. L. Bledsoe, Coal Hill Review  “Pankey’s ninth collection follows the poet into the hushed “gray dawn” of depression as he searches, often in vain, for God, and for faith in nature and himself…. It’s hard to deny the conflict that Pankey explores honestly and powerfully in these new poems.”—Publishers Weekly

    No criminal dared testify against another, while the Whisper was crime-emperor of New York— and the forces of the law were powerless against the ravages of the Underworld! For when the Whisper’s eerie warning fell over Manhattan men died, slashed to bloody bits by a weapon that was invisible but killed horribly! In that awestruck city of riotous crime, where a murmuring voice brought instantaneous death, Richard Wentworth, in the Spider’s strange garb, took up a doomed people’s cause — fighting a Whispering Fury that loosed its thunderbolts in a tornado’s teeth and slew foully to pile up a fortune in streamlined corpses! City of Whispering Death is torn from the pages of the April, 1938 issue of The Spider magazine.
