Alert, present and with a keen poetic style, Tom Schulz’s new poems present him as a committed poet who cannot avert his gaze, or turn away from the world’s fractures and ruptures.
No travel warning could stop him, too great is Tom Schulz’s love of this planet that seems to be moving away from a state of paradise at an ever-faster pace. Wherever he goes in his poetry – whether to Medellín or Venice, the ossuaries of São João or the plantations of Tazacorte – and whether he writes in verse, prose or short form, he constantly tries to break the cycle “of greed and pre-fabricated parts.” In doing so, he uses all the linguistic power at his disposal to create an awareness of the beauty and vulnerability of the world.
