Beschreibung

"Frederick Pheiffer is a Norman Rockwell of the printed page. His
poems, like Rockwell's paintings, do much more than merely depict a
scene. Commonly, they evoke an earlier era and its distinctive ethos.
This way of life emphasized personal honor, individual responsibility,
honest toil and wholesome entertainment. In The Last Stop with an
economy of expression and a supple mastery of context and detail,
Pheiffer takes his reader on a journey of recollection that is neither sen-timental
nor rueful. This journey is, quite simply, truthful.
When Pheiffer applies his artistry to the present, there is often an edge
of sadness. All the same, there is never a wail of despair. Whatever the
time frame, there remains a sense of proportion. The subjects of The
Last Stop are not larger than life. Rather, they reflect the reality of seem-ingly
ordinary people, whose inner nobility elevates them above the inci-dentals
of status, condition, or rank. With such individuals, Pheiffer dis-plays
a remarkable empathy. He also finds ample room in his art for an
appreciation of "all creatures great and small."
A method marks Pheiffer's work: it pervades his entire canon. He begins
with the commonplace, the readily recognizable, something that is, quite
often, literally workaday. Then he links it to something that transcends
the commonplace, such as familial bonds that resist the erosions of fleet-ing
time and changing circumstance. Finally, he allows a universal veri-ty
to shine forth. Whatever the venue - be it factory, nursing home, or
church sanctuary, Pheiffer depicts and celebrates the dignity of the
human person created in the image of God. To this truth beyond all
truths, The Last Stop stands as a robust and heartfelt testament."
-Professor Emeritus Edward J. McBride
St. Mary's University, Halifax, Nova Scotia
