ABOUT ERIC J. CRUZ
Through the Window is St. Mary's University student Eric J. Cruz's first collection of poems.
Through the Window
"It is rare to find such depth of feeling, insight and commitment to poetry in one as young as Eric Cruz. Already he understands that the life of a poet involves great joy and hard work, inspiration and discipline. Eric listens long and keenly to hear each poem as a singular creature. This first book resonates with a voice already distinctive and accomplished: rich with clarity of image, complexity of thought and a musician's careful ear.
Cyra S. Dumitru, author of What the Body Knows
Look out with me / at a space time forgot / to suture... is the perfect invitation to the poetry of Eric Cruz. Go into his poetry and you inhabit open, timeless vistas, whether they be interior or exterior landscapes.
James Cervantes, author of Live Music, The Headlong Future and The Year Is Approaching Snow
