Reviews / Endorsements

"John Skoyles' poems are both witty and very serious. He deals with the large contemporary contradictions in a language that is specific, original and bitingly clear. It is no accident that such urgent tensions as religious tensions, family tensions, political tensions and lovers' tensions, are sometimes put in the terms of a prize fight in which the winner and the loser are the same person. Skoyles' poetry is fascinating because he is clear-eyed but passionate, sarcastic but grave, all at the same time. His is an important new voice in American poetry."—Alan Dugan

JOHN SKOYLES was born in New York City in 1949. His poems have appeared in many magazines including American Poetry Review, The Ark River Review, The Georgia Review and The Ohio Review. In 1973 he received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. He currently lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he is Chairman of the Writing Committee at the Fine Arts Work Center.
