Diverse works of UNT English professor Bruce Bond displayed in several books

Immanent Distance: Poetry and the Metaphysics of the Near at Hand book coverBruce Bond, Regents professor of English, has several new books out -- each unique in its own way. Immanent Distance: Poetry and the Metaphysics of the Near at Hand (University of Michigan Press) is a collection of essays on poetics, and the others are collections of poems.

For the Lost Cathedral (LSU Press) looks at the psychology of religion. Sacrum (Four Way Books) focuses on the enigmas and trials of the body. The 150 sonnets in Black Anthem (University of Tampa Press) convey a meditative energy. And the poems in The Other Sky (Etruscan Press) are accompanied by paintings by Aron Wiesenfeld.

"All of the books are different in focus and style," Bond says, "though they are all haunted by psychological, philosophical and political themes as they relate to language, its power, its reach and its limitations."
