Identified with the Objectivist tradition, Enslin writes about finding meaning within everyday human life as he observes the irreducible reality of the things of this world. Enslin carries forward Charles Olsons sense of the large historical and ethical function of poetry and his dedication at once ecopoetic and ethnopoetic, to place. Collecting Theodore Enslins major work from 1993 to 2003, NINE is a companion volume to Enslins THEN, AND NOW: SELECTED POEMS 1943-1993, also available from SPD books. In his recent poetry, Enslin has composed theme-and-variation sequences, exploring the musical permutation of a limited cluster of words. Tony Frazer calls Enslins work incantatory...captivating...marvelous.
