Oh the fine, brawling, pungent observation of these poems: `the smog-brown sea, `the baggies-drooping sea- Homer would be exhilarated and appalled.

Greg Rappleye revives the language and revives our powers of seeing. Figured Dark is shot through with light. --Linda Gregerson, author of Waterborne and Magnetic NorthRappleyes poems in Figured Dark come from an imagination without peer. There is nothing predictable about them. As Pound urged his heirs to, Rappleye does make it new, plumbing the palpable ordinary, with a dazzling diversity of images, and through a window weve not looked into before.--Dan Gerber, author of A Primer on Parallel Lives and A Voice from the RiverFigured Dark is a lovely book, heart-stopping, at moments, for its directness.

The poems feature a conversational and lyrical plainness. Greg Rappleye fires and tempers metaphor, talk, cultural and literary allusion, and emotion so skillfully that readers can look through to the heart of the matter--the odd details of living and what goodness remains after deaths insinuations. `What does the body want? / To be a crucible says the body, the poet writes. Figured Dark is crucible.--Carol Frost, author of The Queens Desertion
