About this product
- DescriptionIn Wyatt Prunty's new collection of poems, people either keep their balance or, doubting it, tip and fall. A small girl struggles to ride her bike among older children already 'stable as little gyros.' Ice-skating with friends, a boy suddenly drops from sight, and drowns. The poet of Paterson stands at the edge of his Jersey waterfall and kws that 'good balance is belief.' Poising and counterpoising themselves in settings at once fixed and erosive, the people in these poems move through 'one long revisionary river that curls back against itself, as if the only way to move ahead was by deflecting back.'
- Author BiographyWyatt Prunty is the author of eight collections of poetry, most recently Unarmed and Dangerous: New and Selected Poems, also published by Johns Hopkins. His critical studies include Fallen from the Symboled World and a forthcoming collection of essays focused on poetry since World War II. He is the founding director of the Sewanee Writers' Conference and holds the Carlton Chair in poetry at Sewanee: The University of the South. He has served as the general editor of the Sewanee Writers' Series, edited Sewanee Writers on Writing, and directs the Tennessee Williams Fellowship program. He is the recipient of numerous grants and honors, the two most recent being fellowships from the Rockefeller and Guggenheim foundations.
