Gordon Edwards

Gordon Edwards is the nom de plume for Edward G. Happ, a businessman from Stamford Connecticut. Mr. Edwards has been writing poetry for the past thirty years, and was most recently a runner up in the 1994 Poet magazine's annual American Chapbook contest, and the 1996 Stamford Ferguson Library Literary Competition. A graduate of the Liberal Arts College of Drew University, he began writing poetry in the eighth grade, at the encouragement of a junior high school English teacher.
      "It is the incarnation of grace in the simplicity of ordinary language and experience, the 'Word ... dwelt among us,' that has driven my writing. A reviewer summed up my poetry as 'a kind of sophisticated simplicity.' Not that I want to believe my writing is simply 'sophisticated,' but I strive for two things in each piece. On the first reading I want readers to hear something that connects with their own experience. On second reading I hope they see with me the more that is 'enclothed' beneath the common surface."
