OF THE SQUARE MAN

From first poem to last, Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer’s debut collection is remarkable for both its rich imagery and sounds and its varied themes and compositions. His ‘butter-baked images and bulimic verses’—as promised in the tone-setting opening poem—are combined and varied with subtle attitudes toward poetic tradition and prosaic reality. The poems are jarring in their evocative directness. This much is clear: Pfeijffer is not your sober, straightforward poet.
