Praise for The Uncorrected Eye
Like the woodpecker in this collection’s first poem, Bauld pecks away in a “paradiddle of discovery,” a jazz take on the joy and pain of contemporary life as he observes it. Fathers and sons, fading youth, marriage, learning Spanish, Basquiat, the teaching of nuns, the lives of monks comprise only some of the objects of his roving imagination. The Uncorrected Eye gives us a fresh view of life with new and bracing insights.
