Casting the Shadows: Selected Poems


Casting the Shadows: Selected Poems (2001) by Dennis Patrick Slattery is the first of four volumes of poetry by the author. Of this wide assortment of themes, the author writes in the Introduction: “Poetic images, I began to sense, were ways to organize experience along a different pathway in the psyche and in the body. To read or write poetry was indeed a method by which emotion and intellect can create a reality together.” The intent of the volume is to explore the fundamentally poetic nature of the psyche.

Introductory essay plus 91 poems all original and all written by me.
