“This world, the world of human suffering, human folly, belongs to all of us, but the language—pulsing, tender, giddy, suave—is Josh Kalscheur’s alone.”—James Longenbach, judge, Four Way Books Levis Prize in Poetry

Tidal explores the cultural, physical, and historical landscape of Micronesia

Tidal focuses on Chuuk State, a group of islands that are a part of the Federated States of Micronesia. This focus encompasses Micronesia’s morality, its taboos and myths, and how information and stories disseminate between villages, social groups, ethnicities, classes, and genders. Using persona, these poems explore and challenge the idea of witness.

JOSH KALSCHEUR has published poems in Boston ReviewSlate, jubilat, Ninth Letter, Witness, Blackbird, and Best New Poets 2013, among others. A graduate of Saint Olaf College and UW–Madison, he teaches classes at both UW–Madison and Madison College in Madison, Wisconsin.
