About the Author

Kevein Stein is Illinois Poet Laureate and the Caterpillar Professor of English at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. He is the author of the poetry collections A Circus of Want, Bruised Paradise, and Chance Ransom, as well as the critical studies James Wright: The Poetry of a Grown Man, and Poets, Worldly Acts: Public and Private History in Contemporary American Poetry.


"Kevin Stein has developed a particularly American late-modern way of fooling around to get at something deep and necessary ('Okay, death can mean being in the wrong place / at the right time, but mostly it's just time'). He has found his own way of exemplifying and confirming Levi-Strauss's notion that artists 'shape the beautiful / and useful out of the dump heap of human life.'" Edward Hirsch, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry and president of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation "Never hermetic, Stein is one whose forces do not so much bridge as fuse varieties of cultural experience (high and low, sacred and profane) into union." Donald Revell
