David Baker is a professor of English at Denison University.
"The poems collected here are supple and capacious, revitalizing in their engagements with American consciousness and American vernaculars. . . . Baker writes with the distilled, distinguished attentiveness only the finest poets can reliably command." --Linda Gregerson, author of Negative Capability: Essays on Contemporary American Poetry "David Baker's eye on nature is unblinking, and his observations delicate and accurate, but his eye on human intimacies and interactions is just as clear. For me, he is the most expansive and moving poet to come out of the American Midwest since James Wright." --Marilyn Hacker, author of Squares and Courtyards: Poems
