The ascetic and enigmatic expanse of the Great Basin has ì challenged the talents of many writer, but few have met the ì challenge as successfully as William L. Fox. In Reading Sand, ì Fox's elegant minimalist poems capture the essence of the Great ì Basin desert-its daunting emptiness, the passage of light and ì wind across its surfaces, its colors and textures, its silence. ì In "perforated object," the collection's central piece, Fox uses ì a mysterious pierced-horn artifact discovered in Nevada's ì Humboldt Cave as the subject of an extended meditation on the ì nature of history and the inscrutability of the Great Basin's ì complex past. The result is an intellectually provocative and ì aesthetically moving work of a lean grandeur rarely found in ì recent poetry.
