A Day in the Sun By Ivan Argüelles
Paperback: $9.84
Ships in 3-5 business days
The poems in A Day in the Sun say goodbye in a multitude of ways as the author’s identical twin, the New Age philosopher/artist José Argüelles, simultaneously vanishes into the... More > universe and manifests as absolutely everything. Great loss has always been a perpetrator of great poetry. Tennyson’s In Memoriam sent that poet spinning into a questioning of all the tenets of Victorianism. Ivan Argüelles’ vision—“small tokens memento / mori the whirring faces”—goes even further because it opens the mind to its ultimate ground in chaos. José Argüelles redefined the Western calendar and pointed the way to a universal harmony, a “convergence.” In Ivan’s work, the universe is expanding and contracting at once, and speech, far from clarifying, constantly returns us to the fact of Enigma. The world is wild, exciting, in constant motion, but also horrifying, painful, an endless blow to our Narcissism. Both visions can nourish and sustain, but A Day in the Sun beautifully offers us the elegiac, shadow side. –Jack Foley< Less
