The old saw tells us that we shouldn’t argue politics or religion. In the poetry collection REDEMPTION, Lee Passarella avoids these two minefields as best he can, highlighting instead the redemptive moments that make modern life both a journey AND a destination. The going is often rough, as the poetry suggests through the experiences of a number of personas both fictional and real (Beethoven, Dante, Pilate). But REDEMPTION also celebrates those instances of revelation that help us make sense of the seemingly senseless and peace with the world, no matter how briefly.
