"The poems of Timothy Donnelly astonish by their inventive intelligence . . . we learn that self-knowledge can be adequate to knowledge of the world, in all its violence and complexity."—Allen Grossman

Twenty-seven Props for a Production of Eine Lebenszeit was published by Grove Press in 2003. He is poetry editor for Boston Review and teaches at Columbia University.

About the Author:

Timothy Donnelly was born in Providence, RI and attended Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and Princeton Universities. The Cloud Corporation (Wave Books, 2010) was a finalist for the 2011 William Carlos Williams Award. His first book of poems, Twenty-seven Props for a Production of Eine Lebensziet, was published by Grove Press in 2003. His work has been translated into German and Italian and has also appeared in many anthologies such as Legitimate Dangers: American Poets of the New Century, Isn’t It Romantic: 100 Poems by Younger American Poets, Joyful Noise: An Anthology of American Spiritual Poetry, and Poet, Poems, Poetry edited by Helen Vendler. Recent poems have appeared or are forthcoming in A Public Space, Boulevard, Harper’s, Iowa Review, jubilat, The Nation, The New Republic, The Paris Review, and elsewhere. He is a poetry editor for Boston Review and teaches in the Writing Program at Columbia University’s School of the Arts. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two daughters.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Donnelly's formally rigorous and ambitious, not to mention highly anticipated, second book follows up on the many projects of his debut, Twenty-Seven Props for a Production of Ein Liebenzeit, and extends his powers in poems that encompass a wider emotional range. Still here are the gorgeous linguistic surfaces, but also glimpses of a new intimacy: "when I fell you fell beside me and the concrete refused to apologize." Throughout is a kind of dark wordplay--"Demonstrate to yourself a resistance to feeling/ unqualified despair by attempting something like/ perfect despair embellished with hand gestures"--that pokes fun at language while remembering how dangerous words truly are. Procedural poems, such as one that repurposes language from the Patriot Act ("New obstacles shall be established by the Chairman of Failure./ Authorized language drones shall implement and expand/ written combat") portray the dark underbelly of official rhetoric. A pair of beautiful and frustrated long poems introduce a mind agoraphobicly trapped in its vast vocabulary: "the adverb here refers to my person/ and all its outskirts." These poems are a strange and powerful force to be reckoned with.
