Item description for Bright Hunger (American Poets Continuum) by Mark Irwin...

Mark Irwin's poetics are a direct descendent of Rilke and Hart Crane. His poetry is propelled by charged rhythms and a haunting music. "An impeccable craftsman, Mark Irwin writes with a lyrical urgency that somehow combines the brilliance of Valery and the natural ease of observation of William Carlos Williams." -David St. John

Mark Irwin is the author of four previous collections of poetry, two of them with BOA. Among his literary awards are National Endowment for the Arts and Ohio Art Council Fellowships, two Push-cart Prizes, the James Wright Poetry Award and a Fulbright Fellow-ship to Romania. He lives with his family in Denver, Colorado, and spends a part of each year on a wilderness ranch in the San Luis Valley.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bright Hunger (American Poets Continuum)?

quiet devastation  Mar 7, 2007
It can be a problem with reading poetry to encounter poets who repeat the same linguistic gestures again and again, but Irwin takes the same handful of objects--trees, sky, clouds--and creates an emotional landscape of quiet devastation, the poems' speakers small inside a world whose essential mechanisms are largely unknowable. This concentration of concerns, coupled with beautifully constructed lines, mean that, for me, Mark Irwin is one of the most affecting poets out there.
