"Tod Marshall's Range of the Possible is a timely, incisive symposium on the state—the many states—of poetry at the beginning of the 21st century. These twenty poets, all born within a few years of 1950, are some of the most influential poets of our time, are all currently working in their prime. Notably absent are the part-lines and political fences that torment our English departments. Instead I find a powerful devotion, articulated by poet after poet, to reading—to poetry—and to a sense of global involvement and sympathy. Range of the Possible is invigorating, enlightening, and refreshing."—David Baker, author of Heresy and the Ideal: On Contemporary Poetry and poetry editor of The Kenyon Review

"Tod Marshall understands the rich plurality of American poetry, and in his splendid book of interviews—the best we have of poets born between 1941 and 1959—he ambitiously extends the discourse and widens our sense of just how much is possible (how much is being accomplished!) in American poetry at the start of a new century."—Edward Hirsch, author of How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry

TOD MARSHALL's interviews, essays, and poetry have been widely published. He received his M.F.A. degree from Eastern Washington University and his Ph.D. from The University of Kansas. He lives in Spokane, Washington, and teaches at Gonzaga University.
