William Everson: The Life Of Brother Antoninus

Literature by Lee Bartlett

In the annals of modern American letters, William Everson holds prime place as a poet of conscience and consciousness of self, his richly textured verse mapping his extraordinary inner journey as social activist, Dominican brother, and preeminent religious and philosophical poet. In William Everson: The Life of Brother Antoninus, Lee Bartlett charts the outer journey, drawing on the reminiscences of the poetry, his friends, and a wealth of archival material.

Bartlett is an extremely fine narrator and expositor; he commands a vast body of material pertinent to Everson’s life and work, and has a fine sense of Everson’s poetry.
