calenture-cover.jpgPoet and second-year WITS Writer Kent Shaw has some big news. His poems have arrived in the form of a book.

Calenture, winner of the Tampa Review Prize, is Kent Shaw’s first book of poems, and it was released March 17. According to one of the judges who chose Shaw’s book, “[In] Calenture, Shaw teaches us, is marked by hallucination, but that straying thought in Shaw’s hands is a skilled poetic meditation encompassing a wide ocean of spiritual revelation. Although turmoil is clearly a poetic trigger, his hypnotic regrains expand, rather than confine, the brave tenor of his poems.”
