-Waterblind by Ralph Adamo

by Ralph Adamo
ISBN 0-916620-47-6
120 Pages $20

Ralph Adamo has published five previous collections of poetry, and he has also written a book-length poem, The Bicameralization. He has taught creative writing at Loyola, Tulane, and the University of New Orleans.

"Waterblind collects thirty years of Ralph Adamo's poems, long needed by us all, so dazzling is his voice, so singing his syntax, so original his art that we may have forgotten what we hungered for in poetry were it not for him. I celebrate Waterblind with awe and gratitude." - Carolyn Forché

While at Loyola University, from 1993-1999, Adamo edited New Orleans Review. He has also worked as a journalist, television script writer, and CETA teacher, bringing poetry into communities of the elderly. Adamo earned an MFA at the University of Arkansas in 1974.
