    This is a lovely, complex collection and the latest by the current Illinois Poet Laureate Stein s background as a professor of English Literature and Creative Writing are evident throughout, as the collection features lots of wordplay that is ripe for discussion and dissection Topics range from the very personal to the broad and philosophical Stein s personality shines through as a pervading blend of wry and tongue in cheek commentary.

    Kevin Stein s WRESTLING LI PO FOR THE REMOTE is a contemplative collection of poetry which blends the language of academia and contemporary culture to cast a lyrical narrative on coming of age in the heartland, race in America and ageless philosophy The poems are tightly constructed creatively crafted musings which seem charged as the reader professes through the collection Keeping Score, Is Beautiful, Cat Church Communion and Sputnik Summer are among the highlights.

    A lot of word play and word speculation Poetry is definitely about the word The first poem Field Guide goofs on that and what sort of poem a poem is based on the language I liked it Some of the rest I didn t like as much but that s typical of a collection of poems for me.
