"One of the most astonishing first books I have encountered in years."
"Simply gorgeous... an almost vertiginous beauty."
—Sarah Maclay, Poetry International
A book of contemporary spirituality that confronts suffering and attempts to reconcile it with a unitary vision of the divine, Body of the World explores the perennial themes of mysticism—of the world as the self—in a variety of new contexts.
“Sam Taylor’s first book of poetry is strange and delicious... By leading readers in with the meditative and pulling them out with the worldly, Taylor performs a rare feat: he explodes the moment of experience into a justified complexity, an earned density.”
—Lilah Hegnauer, Virginia Quarterly Review
