Reluctant Mirrors
New and Selected Poems
Aaron Rosen

Sheep Meadow
2006 • 155 pp. 6 1/2 x 9"

$12.95 Paperback, 978-1-931357-41-8

A poet of wit, spit, and polish, Aaron Rosen deals with two major themes, love and language, each held close and at furthest distance. He is simultaneously spare and rich; he is a master of opposites brought into close proximity, call it storm and calm, or the proximity of appearance and illusion, certainty and hesitation. His is a poetry of discovery and preservation—the structures of his art.

Reviews / Endorsements

"The Hall of Mirrors is also of course a site of infinite reflection. It is in that place Aaron Rosen chooses to stand ... he discovers marvels of form there, flesh, shadow, pulse, ash, syllable and silence, glyphs of our becoming and unbecoming. "—Michael Palmer

AARON ROSEN was born in Utica, NY, and was educated in schools in New York and California. His poetry has appeared in numerous magazines and in four collections from Sheep Meadow Press. Formerly on the English faculty at SUNY/Buffalo, where he also served as provost, he now lives in Boston.
