Patrick Bizzaro has published an essay in the most recent edition of Appalachian Journal on two recent books of poems by West Virginia Poet Laureate Marc Harshman.

Applying his theory on the necessity of literary and creative reading and writing skills to describing cutting edge findings in all fields of inquiry (a theory he advanced at at the meeting of the English Association of Pennsylvania State Universities on October 3, 2014), Bizzaro says of Harshman, “...in both of the volumes considered here, one might argue that it is the making of places and events into stories and poems that is the transcendent act. The imagination sees what is not visible to the unaided eye.”
