In Triangles of Light: The Edward Hopper Poems, readers will hear the voice of a major American painter who, while apparently being so different from most of them, emerges as a familiar type of American countryman. Hoggard's ability to conjure up an authentic voice of someone other than himself is something he's been known to do especially well in his fiction; here he does it in his poetry. too. What we have here, then, is a range of voice that reveals a lot in short spaces. Some of the messages might even seem frightening at times whereas others, more drolly cast, will make one smile. The scope of this book is truly original. Hoggard is a poet with as wide a range of voices as a fine novelist — which he, incidentally, is. What one especially notes here, though, is a strikingly incisive understanding of the American psyche. Hoggard has done his homework; he knows his subject, and the voice of his subject — the iconic Edward Hopper — engages us thoroughly. Sometimes he even shocks us with the power of his openness.
