|About the Book
poetic writings of Louis E. Bourgeois offer an exacting appreciation of
personal tragedy, and of an infinitely larger world that embraces
"the indifference of life to all things." With unwavering
self-awareness, the poet defies universal authority, and challenges the
reader's perceptions of passing events. His work is void of spurious hope,
yet taunts us with a lingering sense of individual purpose.
