Listen




"Dennis Lee Foster's poems explore the human condition in all its facets, light and dark, buoyant and despairing, rational and emotional. At once deeply personal and yet universal, his reflections, musings, and chronicles of life from birth to death impart a plethora of emotions, from tenderness to outrage, but also an intellectual grasp and appreciation of 'the impossible fortune of having existed at all.' His poems both celebrate and commiserate, embrace and embroil, tantalize and deny, but always and in all ways depict what it is to be human."
