Robert Deluty, Graduate School, Publishes his 49th Book

Robert Deluty, associate dean of the graduate school, has published a new book, “A Mingled Yarn.”

robertdelutyIn his review, Ronald Pies writes: “Robert Deluty’s wonderful new collection of poems draws its title and inspiration from Shakespeare’s line, ‘The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.’ In Deluty’s poems, there is certainly the recognition of evil — e.g., ‘neo-Nazi teen/ planning to change his surname/ from Brown to White’ — but also the eternal force of good, as in, ‘in the mailbox/ finding her lost wallet/ with extra cash.’ Also evident in these poems is the enlivening spirit of gratitude; for example, we discover ‘in her wheelchair/ the blind, deaf elder counting/ her blessings.’ Finally, as always in Deluty’s work, we find among the interwoven themes of good and ill the golden thread of the author’s generosity and humor.”

Copies of “A Mingled Yarn,” as well as of Dr. Deluty’s other books, are on sale at the Bookstore.
