In his debut collection Ben Downing reimagines the possibilities of American poetry in terms of history, structure, rhythm, and rhyme. The poems in "The Calligraphy Shop" are highly formal but well shaped, elegantly poised yet picky in their choice of words, subjects, iambs, and trochees. Extremely erudite and often hilarious, sometimes bawdily so, this is an original collection by a brilliant young poet.

From the Inside Flap:

Erudite but never obscure, technically virtuosic yet playful and relaxed, Ben Downing reminds us that, pace T.S. Eliot, poets in our time need not be difficult to be good. The Calligraphy Shop is a sophisticated and superbly engaging first collection by a brilliant young poet.

The Managing Editor of Parnassus: Poetry in Review, Ben Downing is a freelance writer of essays and reviews. His poetry has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, The Nation, The Paris Review, Poetry, Poetry Ireland, and The Yale Review. He lives in New York City with his wife and daughter.
