About this title


This book was published in part due to a 2006 Literary Fellowship for Publishers, Literary Arts, Inc, Portland, Oregon Cover art: Harry Griswold Cover design: Kristin Johnson, redbat design "Harry Griswold's reality presses in from all sides. He speaks in a calm voice, quiet for the most part, but we sense the wildness just under the surface, pushing against the words." - Joseph Millar, Fortune "Harry Griswold is the kind of poet you would like to sit down with. He's weaving stories and he knows just how much to show, how much to tell. You won't find a false step or easy theatrics. Camera Obscura is the work of an experienced, astute man, very worthwhile taking in. We need more wisdom in our poetry and Griswold delivers." - Eloise Klein Healy, The Island Project: Poems for Sappho "Harry Griswold's aptly-titled debut collection of poems, Camera Obscura, is filled with people-real and imagined-at times isolated in their grief and locked in silence. The poet gives voice to their yearnings, and solace in his plain-spoken words. This is a poetry deeply focused in its seeing, its way of knowing. From the seemingly mundane to the near extraordinary, these poems look at the dailiness of our lives, as in the camera's darkened chamber, 'right in the middle of things.'" - Natasha Trethewey, Native Guard, winner of the Pulitzer Prize A graduate of the MFA Program at Pacific University, Harry Griswold teaches poetry writing in a private workshop at Solano Beach, CA, and lives in San Diego. He is originally from Rochester, NY, where he graduated from Monroe Community College and the University of Rochester. His training was in computer science and experimental psychology. Camera Obscura is Harry's first book of poetry.
