An Elegy for September: . .has been added to your Cart. The book was slightly reminiscent of Ed Abbey's early novel, BLACK SUN, but not half as good. It was a struggle to even finish AN ELEGY FOR SEPTEMBER, and it is a short novel. No more Nichols for me, I'm afraid.

The spirits of place have graced Stephen Holt, knowing that he will remember the ground upon which he stands and the people whose voices have risen from that ground. When he travels, he carries those voices with him and thus carries an immunity to the fashionable, the slight, and the solipsistic that characterize so much poetry being written today. These spirits of place, as he declares in Quarry Rock Fence, serve as guide and comfort/on a hard stretch of landscape. Kathryn Stripling Byer (from the Foreword)
Elegy for September by Stephen M. Holt is a collection of poems that characterizes a time period and specific geographic affiliation. Stephen Holt is an Appalachian writer who focuses a great deal on Eastern Kentucky. In this collection, the first half feels like an elegy or lament to the dead of years gone by. He titles several poems by the year represented “34” “37,” one talking about the lack of rain and the latter referring to a flood. He uses a great deal of water imagery, from the rain to the river where hymns were sung by fundamentalists. In “37” he says, “Surrounded, trapped in river bloat, folks/ cried through days of night, prayed/ for the light, sang Washed in the Blood/ till a thousand swollen tounges of dread filled dried out throats” (15-18). The palpable images that he creates help to bring the mountains and history of this area to life. In “The Old Plantation in Winter” he says, “Bottomland undergrowth stands/ ice-shackled, neck-deep/ in brackish blends of backflow, still/ on the surface, although” (4-7). He uses these images to transport the reader to a time and place that has somewhat been forgotten, yet the struggle is timeless. In the poem “Gift Boxes” he shares about struggles and how his parents shared what they had with a family who was struggling financially. This sharing was done often years ago but with a great deal of privacy because they wanted people to maintain their pride. “Until this day I have not told/ any living soul/ about our parents’ great and secret love” (22-24). This characterizes a generation of communities that sought to care for each other and I sense that he thinks it is a timeless thought. If you are not from the area it might be challenging to get the references to many Eastern Kentucky specific references, but it is eye opening to see his powerful connection to the area.
Once again Steve Holt has created a book of poems in which the words come to life and jump off the page! As the comedian Steve Martin said in one of his routines, "some people have a way with words, others, not have way." Steve Holt definitely "has way." Comfortable in the setting of his native Appalachia, he effortlessly spins poem after poem about the land he loves and the events he has experienced. This book was an easy read, perfect for a person like me who is not trained in poetry, but it has also passed muster for those who are. So much so that my daughter, who is a teacher, has taken my copy of the book for use in her high school English class. Eddie Prichard
