Kelly Cherry, who studied philosophy in graduate school at the
University of Virginia, has never lost her deep love of the
subject; The Retreats of Thought takes the reader through the
philosophical domain. What do we really know of our world? Why is
there anything at all? What is time? What is a person? What is
mind? What are goodness and beauty? What does the artist seek?
These and other problems are shrewdly examined in Cherrys
passionate, skeptical, witty, and sometimes wry poems. Cherry
places herself in the pragmatic tradition of philosopher Charles
Sanders Peirce but admits to Platonic longings.
