The title of Silver and Information comes from a photographer’s statement, “My work is becoming more and more and more silver and less and less information.” This book swings between the poles of aboriginal working-class Philadelphia, where a father maps the economies and grievances of a generation, and the more silvery, reflective, and incandescent meditations on the lapsed world.
Review Quotes
Hayden Carruth, author of Toward the Distant Islands
“Smith’s passionate attention to substance—things, people, events, places—is what forms the structures of his poems, which are formal in the truest sense. They are made in a master’s unselfconscious of craft for the purpose of saying what is important. They are neither new nor old, but themselves, and they affect me deeply.”
