Theory of Mind: New & Selected Poems, 1978-2008 demonstrates Bin Ramke’s ability to bring a cornucopia of human knowledge to bear upon the individual’s most intimate experiences and most compelling encounters with the world.

Drawing upon four decades of his poetry, and beginning with an ample selection of new work, Theory of Mind: New & Selected Poems, 1978-2008 demonstrates Bin Ramke’s ability to bring a cornucopia of human knowledge to bear upon the individual’s most intimate experiences and most compelling encounters with the world. Whether Mr. Ramke is writing about the exigencies of family life, the complex interrelations of people with environment, or the meaning of work, of health crises, of cultural upheaval, of natural disaster—he is able to draw upon an unprecedented range of social, scientific, literary, and philosophical sources. Such writing offers a lens of both telescopic and microscopic precision, and deepens our understanding of how intricately collaged is each instance of human existence.



BIN RAMKE, former editor of a book series for the University of Georgia Press, current editor of the Denver Quarterly and holder of the Phipps Chair in English at the University of Denver, studied mathematics in college before turning to poetry. He continues to see similar patterns arising from language and mathematics in all aspects of human consciousness and human behavior. But his childhood in rural Louisiana and Texas is also a part of the central concerns and beauty that his work tries to engage. Ramke has written nine previous poetry collections.
