WINNER OF THE 2007 DONALD HALL PRIZE IN POETRYSelected by Bob Hicok
Burn and Dodgeis part serious/part serious play and opens with a frank and occasionally antic exploration of contemporary vices, such as Guilt, Envy, and Regret. Some poems "dodge" such preoccupations by playing with a nonce form called sonnet/ghazal. The collection contains a sequence of poems called "Current Events," based on newspaper stories. that is also a playful meditation on the nature of the interrogative pronouns (Who, What, Where, When . . . ) as well as another series of homophonic sonnets called "Clare-Hewn," which are aural "translations" of John Clare.
