Asylum

By Laurence Loeb

loeb“In the tradition of physician-poets, Laurence Loeb tenderly, quizzically, humorously explores the progress of a psychiatrist and his patients, tracking both the neophyte doctor as he matures and the patients as they make their discoveries. Asylum literally begins in an asylum, but it ends in an office where the tête à tête of doctor and patient suddenly becomes a metaphor for the poet and his reader, a refuge that accords each human response its due. Loeb is a sensitive portraitist, especially of children, and a courageous self-portraitist as well. The speaker of these poems is warm-hearted, sagacious, and always in awe of the beauty of the psyche, however it is configured.” –Molly Peacock
