"Vogelsang's poetry is both abrasive and generous."-John Ashbery"Vogelsang has found an interrogating voice at once dissembling and direct."-Stanley PlumlyThe poems in Vogelsang's fourth collection are events of great pressure, tension, and heat. In a language pitched somewhere just above the vernacular, Vogelsang often connects with the classics and grapples with concerns of our time, offering a singular experience-emotionally affecting and intellectually provocative poetry.Arthur Vogelsang is the author of A Planet, Twentieth Century Women, and Cities and Towns, which received the Juniper Prize. He is the coeditor of The American Poetry Review and teaches at New England College. He divides his time between Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
