The Number of Names – “The voice of these poems is discriminating and sympathetic, the act of naming carefully and lovingly articulated; they include our motives toward beauty and evil…In our age of diminishments, The Number of Names undertakes the difficult task of celebrating, without gratuitousness, an abiding variety and abundance.” —William Wenthe, Pushcart Prize winner and author of Not Till We Are Lost, nominee for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry and The National Book Award. “The poems in The Number of Names are among Donald Levering’s most compelling and philosophic work. It is as if the poet had paused in the midst of life to contemplate death, change, and inheritance−not as separate things but as part of an ongoing poetic present. A sense of another world‒dream, myth‒permeates this book and enriches us as readers.” —Miriam Sagan, Lannan Foundation Marfa Resident and Director of the Santa Fe Community College Creative Writing Program; author of over 20 books, including Map of the Lost
