Dr. Robert Deluty, Associate Dean, Publishes His 44th Book

Dr. Robert Deluty, associate dean of the graduate school, has published a new volume of poetry, “Rock Piles and Cathedrals.”  In his review, Ronald Pies writes: “Robert Deluty’s marvelous new collection of poems takes, as itsleitmotif, Saint-Exupery’s observation that ‘A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.’ This is reminiscent of Michelangelo’s revelation that his art aimed at freeing the ‘inner statue’ from within the rough marble. So, too, with Deluty’s observations, in which he perceives the inner light, concealed within so many of life’s dark moments. Readers will find many penetrating illuminations throughout this volume, revealing Deluty’s remarkable ability to see cathedrals within piles of rocks.”

This volume, as well as all of Dr. Deluty’s other books, may be purchased at the UMBC Bookstore.
