so we beat on," dave e. ahlman's second book of poems, looks at contemporary life through four lenses--religious, educational, American & physical experience--in an attempt to dissect the purposes of postmodern existence. It is self-aware, self-contradictory, self-absorbed, self-aggrandzing, self-doubting, self-sufficient & self-mastering. It grapples with the misunderstood Gen Y spirit, mind, heart & body vying for answers in a world with too many options--too much consumerism, terror & technology. It fragments, sings, combines scripture, art & literaure, & rummages through the wiles of psychological madness common of those lost at sea. In short, "so we beat on" is a work devoted to the human fight for absolute meaning, for a home which can never be concretely discovered--something F. Scott Fitzgerald outlined when he wrote humanity as "boats [beating] against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
