Close distances

“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 the master of opposites brought into close proximity, call it a storm and calm, or the proximity of appearance and illusion, certainty and hesitation. His is poetry of discovery and preservation—the structures of his art.” —Stanley Moss

Praise for Reluctant Mirrors
“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, New York. He taught for many years at SUNY Buffalo where he also served as provost. His other collections of poetry published by Sheep Meadow Press include Traces, Taps for Space, Reluctant Mirrors, Proximities, and God Song: A Grieving Simile.
