This small book by Pulitzer Prize winner, Stephen Dunn, was a very quick and enjoyable read. Mr. Dunn sums up some of our ordinary thoughts and feelings in the poems Lucky and The Lost Thing. In Replicas, Mr. Dunn provides insight into the masks that many people wear to cocktail parties where appearances can be very deceiving.

The poem Signs illustrates some of the ridiculous connotations in some of our traditional signage, such as Slow Children and Falling Rock Zone. In his words are the memory of a kiss, the aura of the aftermath of making love and Mr. Dunn’s attempt to memorialize time. These are all moments that we share in common, just like everything and everyone else in the world. It is in our sense of commonality that we identify with these simple portraits preserved for all time by the written word.
