Book Sanctuary – Poetry as Consciousness
“We need poetry more than ever, if only to recognize ourselves. Richard Gilbert’s Poetry as Consciousness reminds us that indeed at a fundamental level we are poetry – that the co-creative “poetic space of mind” is a primary and essential expression of our being-human in the world.
Poetry as Consciousness is sublime, a compelling picture of poetry as the languaging of the creative substance and alchemy of mind and soul, as Gilbert also peers further through the veil to give vocabulary to the elusive haiku genre within the context of its role as a cognitive poetics.”
– Michelle Tennison, author of murmuration (2016)
