Robert Deluty, associate dean of the graduate school, has published a new
book of poetry, “Particles of Life.” In his review, Dr. Ronald Pies writes:
“In the Jewish mystical tradition, it is mankind’s task to release the hidden ‘sparks’ of divinity that are trapped within the material world. In his wonderful new collection of poems, Robert Deluty achieves something akin to this, by releasing the poetry within the common ‘particles of life.’ This, Dr. Deluty accomplishes with his usual blend of humor, sharp-eyed realism, and deeply humane understanding.”
Copies of “Particles of Life,” as well as of Deluty’s other books, are on sale at the UMBC Bookstore.
