From Rage to Hope
The beauty of William Ruleman’s content and craft takes the reader at full sail into Mr. Ruleman’s sonnets, both Italian and English. There is music in his ballads, architecture in the skyline of his odes, and the highest honor bestowed upon those poets whose work he has translated. Finally, the quatrains of his “Late Night Thoughts on a New Year’s Morning” are beyond superlatives. Everyone who enters this book and knows the territory will see craft at its best and agree that William Ruleman is the finest of poets and most definitely, as Eliot put it about Pound: Il miglior fabbro!
