“[These] poems—swift, judicious, perpetually alert—chart the marvelous vantages within daily particulars, cusps, close listening. A master of quickened lulls (‘in pursuit / of paradise I’m still,’ he writes, and I feel the wild, stunned presence of eternity-in-an-afternoon), Rosenberg is among poetry’s most attentive naturalists of the instant.”—Zach Savich

New poetry

In this striking collection, the world is offered up in miniature, each poem torqued with the energy of doves trapped in a top hat. With these snapshot poems, Rosenberg reminds us that to face the beloved is to disappear. The taut lyrics of this book suggest a self-interrogation that is at the same time an investigation into our culture at large.

DAN ROSENBERG’S The Crushing Organ won the 2011 American Poetry Journal Book Prize. He holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and a PhD from the University of Georgia. He teaches at Wells College, and co-edits Transom.
