"Dunn's new poems are driven by the same tireless force that made his New and Selected Poems (1994) so powerful, but there is a new tone here, a deepening of his recognition of life's perversities."―Booklist

In this tenth collection, Stephen Dunn turns his "wise, well-practiced eye" (Library Journal) on an America growing ever more stringent with its daily mercies. Not content merely to observe the world, Dunn's stance is always dual, complicit. And as he navigates through each paradox of his moral and aesthetic and erotic selves, this poet, described by Sydney Lea as one "who remains open to contradictions," travels to a place of exact and complicated vision.

Review:

Dunn's new collection of poetry, the first since his New & Selected Poems 1974-1994, explores interior worlds of human loneliness and exterior worlds of Darwinian animal struggle. Broken relationships figure prominently in the human world, with a sense of loss that kills free will: "Everything was clear, and nothing much/the better for it./ They agreed it was a matter of caring,/ and each felt the dull courage that comes/ from caring less." With the animals, free will is absent anyway, and the savage realities come inevitably as instinct--as when a tiger cub raised by goats discovers its carnivorous and lethal nature. The common thread in many poems is the acknowledgment of a crushing determinism.

About the Author:

Stephen Dunn is the author of eighteen poetry collections. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Different Hours and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the recipient of an Academy Award for Literature. A Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Richard Stockton University, he lives in Frostburg, Maryland.
