False Prophet by Stan Rice

Stan Rice, who died in December 2002, was a poet of unique, uncompromising vision. Joy and brutality, faith and faithlessness, the beauty of truth and, at times, of untruththese opposing forces come together one last time in his final book of poetry, a haunting collection of psalms. Beginning with his Psalm 151that is, taking up where the Bible leaves offRice calls us to his own kind of prayer and contemplation. Lord, hear me out, he begins. At the point of our need / The storehouse shares its shambles. An elegant, passionate, tragic lament for our condition, Rices homemade psalms exhort us indirectly to accept our fatethe world as it is. In the brave, unshrinking manner that has characterized his whole career, Rice has written a profound farewell.
