Poet and author R. Cary Bynum’s “poetry has a deepened literary strategy. He gives the reader not only a narrator who has looked at seascapes, seeing them at times in Hopkins-like exactitude, but also a narrator who has tapped into that natural embodiment of human myth, the rhythms of the sea. -William A. Sessions, Emeritus Professor and author, Biographer of Flannery O’Connor.
