Andrew Chavez began his career with poetry because he started having intense revelatory experiences showing him a truth and beauty never seen or experienced before. Despite having no formal training with poetry, he had been a student of the social sciences, Chavez adopted the language of poetry to explore the nature of the revelations he was having while also allowing nature to teach him how to observe, what to observe, and how to express himself in a fitting manner. Revelations are always part of Chavez's world. What are they? Where do they come from? What are they all about? Chavez turned his back on the road leading to the title of professional or academic poet. He made his life's goal the discovery of how those intense revelations fit into the whole process of life and living. Rarely does a poet decide to put all else aside for the sake of truth and beauty. Chavez has done that and allows a reader to see what the whole journey is like. The author has been writing poetry for over thirty years. He has a Master's degree in English from Kansas State University and is the author of: A New Romanticism: Essays And Poems (2000), A New Romanticism: Updated And Revised (2006), Shanidar Cave (2008), A Modern Romantic Odyssey (2008), Three Verse Plays (2008), The Expanded Version Of A New Romanticism (2008).
