About the Author:

Joseph Harrison is Poetry Advisor in the Advanced Writing Program of the School of Advanced Academic Studies at Johns Hopkins University and lives in Baltimore. His poems have appeared in a variety of magazines, including Antioch Review, Boston Review, Paris Review, Kenyon Review, and Yale Review. They have also been included in The Monitor Yearbook of American Poetry 1996 and The Best American Poetry 1998.

Review:

"The poems in this first book are so witty and formally adept, so technically accomplished, that they almost seem to come from another era."

"For many poets, inherited rhyming forms are themselves an attractive artificial setting, a literary-historical Elysium where pure technique finds its rewards. Joseph Harrison's Someone Else's Name makes him the latest to master this realm."
