About This Anthology
Certainly there are more than seven dimensions to the human as Zolen Caló finds fit to define him or her in this extensive selection of poems. If so, we do not wonder of them as we read with awe and surprise the reach of this poet's perception: raw, real, poignant, tender. If any one modern poet has written with the breadth by which Caló addresses the human condition, then the term modern must be racked with the 20th century greats of Pound, Eliot . . . or perhaps, dare we allude, too, to the phantom nymph of whom Caló teases in the introduction of this anthology: Emily Dickinson whose life of imagination and calm protest bridged the transcendental with the modern in universal poetry and thought. This, Earth, Dirt And Dust a major anthology of the reclusive poet's works commands the attention of both the common working soul and the pretentiously bored intellect, to whom Caló extends a simultaneous reach.
