"[Stephen Dunn] has taken his place among our major, indispensable poets."—Miami Herald
Full of grace and masterful precision, the poems in Stephen Dunn's sixteenth book of poetry attest to the contradictions we live with in the here and now, both political and metaphysical, and the essential human comedy of getting through the day.
from "The House on the Hill"
. . . from out of the fog,
a large, welcoming house would emerge
made out of invention and surprise.
No things without ideas! you'd shout,
and the doors would open,
and the echoes would cascade down
to the valleys and the faraway towns.
