Different Hours: Poems
A wise and graceful new collection by one of our major, indispensable poets (Sidney Lea). The mysteries of Eros and Thanatos, the stubborn endurance of mind and body in the face of diminishment--these are the undercurrents of Stephen Dunn's eleventh volume. I am interested in exploring the 'different' hours, he says, not only of one's life, but also of the larger historical and philosophical life beyond the personal.

The Insistence of Beauty: Poems
Beauty isn't nice. Beauty isn't fair; So, in part, states an epigraph for this stunning new collection, his thirteenth, by the Pulitzer Prize winner for Poetry (2000). First traversing betrayal and loss, Stephen Dunn then moves to speak of new love, with its attendant pleasures and questioning. The title poem, perhaps emblematic of the book as a whole, is evocative of beauty's often surprising manifestations even in the light of tragedy; as on that terrible day when those silver planes came out of the perfect blue. Because beauty jars us, makes us look twice, it is as startling as a good poem, and as insistent. Fortunately, it is never too late to search for the right words for what we've seen, felt, endured. With quiet authority Dunn enacts what it feels like to be a particular man at a particular juncture of his life; struggling not to deny, but to name, then rename.

Local Visitations: Poems
In his twelfth collection, his first since winning the Pulitzer Prize, Stephen Dunn turns his keen gaze on Sisyphus, our contemporary Everyman. Free, for the time being, from the power of the gods and the ceaseless weight of the rock, he struggles to navigate twenty-first-century America. In language by turns mordant and tender, often elegiac, Dunn illuminates the quotidian burdens of his all-too-human hero, as well as the abrasions of ambivalence and choice, finally concluding that here / and there, though mostly here, even fate is reversible / with struggle or luck. In a second sequence of poems, nineteenth-century novelists become local visitors to the author's South Jersey towns. Chekhov in Port Republic, Jane Austen in Egg Harbor, Dostoyevsky in Wildwood : these inventions and others give Dunn provocative new latitudes. As in his previous books, he balances the casual and the vivid as he plumbs the ambiguity and mystery of human relations (New York Times Book Review).

Whereas: Poems
Incisively capturing the oddities of our logic and the whimsies of our reason, the poems in Whereas show there is always another side to a story. With graceful rhythm and equal parts humor and seriousness, Stephen Dunn considers the superstition and sophistry embedded in everyday life: household objects that seem to turn against us, the search for meaning in the barrage of daily news, the surprising confessions between neighbors across a row of hedges. Finding beauty in the ordinary, this collection affirms the absurdity of making affirmations, allowing room for more rethinking, reflection, revision, prayer, and magic in the world.

New and Selected Poems 1974-1994
Stephen Dunn is justly celebrated as one of the strongest poets of his generation. Now in this rich gathering, he selects from his eight collections and includes sixteen new poems marked by the haunting Snowmass Cycle. The heralded clarity and intelligence of Dunn's poems are in full evidence here, as is his ability to charm and evoke pathos. As the poet's earlier focus moves from - but never entirely forsakes - the mysteries of dailiness and the complications of domestic life, he more openly embraces the philosophical and social concerns that have always been at the heart of his work. As ever, wit happily resides with seriousness, affirmation coexists with hardship. I want to find the cool, precise language / for how passion gives rise to passion, Dunn says in one of the new poems. For two decades, such insistence has led him to a wise lucidity that places him among our consequential poets.

Here and Now: Poems
In his sixteenth collection, Stephen Dunn continues to bring his imagination and intelligence to what Wallace Stevens calls the problems of the normal, which of course pervade most of our lives. The poem Don't Do That opens with the lines: It was bring-your-own if you wanted anything / hard, so I brought Johnnie Walker Red / along with some resentment I'd held in / for a few weeks. In other poems, Dunn contemplates his own mortality, echoing Yeats- That is no country for old men / cadenced everything I said -only to discover he's joined their ranks. In The Writer of Nudes his speaker is in search of the body's grammar but tells his models, Don't expect to see yourself as other / than I see you. Full of grace, wit, humor, and masterful precision, the poems in Here and Now attest to the contradictions we live with in the here and now. Political and metaphysical, these astonishing poems remind us of the essential human comedy of getting through each day. from The House on the Hill . . . from out of the fog, a large, welcoming house would emerge made out of invention and surprise. No things without ideas! you'd shout, and the doors would open, and the echoes would cascade down to the valleys and the faraway towns.

Loosestrife: Poems
In this tenth collection, Stephen Dunn turns his wise, well-practiced eye (Library Journal) on an America growing ever more stringent with its daily mercies. Not content merely to observe the world, Dunn's stance is always dual, complicit. And as he navigates through each paradox of his moral and aesthetic and erotic selves, this poet, described by Sydney Lea as one who remains open to contradictions, travels to a place of exact and complicated vision.

Lines of Defense: Poems
In his seventeenth collection of poetry, Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Dunn confronts the lines we fight against and the ones we draw for ourselves. Lines of Defense poignantly captures the absurdities of modern life, expectations derailed, the lived life juxtaposed to the imagined life, and the defenses we don to make do. The poems in Lines of Defense are wry and elegiac, precisely observed and wide-reaching. As with the best of Dunn's work, they take stock of the quotidian aspects of life, of the essential comedy of getting through the day: finding a lost cat; not being invited to a party; taking a granddaughter to a carnival. The lines of defense are the lines of the verse itself, as poetry forms a stronghold against mortality. This essential volume showcases a poet writing at the height of his powers. From Before We Leave : Where are we going? It's not an issue of here or there. And if you ever feel you can't take another step, imagine how you might feel to arrive, if not wiser, a little more aware how to inhabit the middle ground between misery and joy.
