ValuingBook - 2019
In his second collection, Christopher Kondrich navigates the link between what we see as our inner value and the external world that supplies it. Valuing's deeply personal poems explore faith, love, ethics, and mortality from a variety of angles and through a variety of poetic forms as a means of questioning the origination of ones own value system. Does it come from the belief in a god, from the love one gives or receives, or from the diminution of the self and its desires? If "you cannot sneak through your life" as the speaker of one of Valuing poems proclaims, then how might one ensure that the noise a life inevitably makes is an echo of the values one holds dear?
