About the Author

An acclaimed poet, essayist, anthologist, BBC commentator, and critic, Dana Gioia is the author of three books of poems, the pioneering essay collection Can Poetry Matter?, and Nosferatu, a libretto. He was recently nominated to be Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts and lives in Santa Rosa, California, with his family.

Reviews

"[Gioia's] third book of poetry is achingly good . . . Don't take my word for it: Read the book." --The Philadelphia Inquirer "[Gioia's] rhymes are true, his meters are correct and musical, his diction is fresh--he is well on the way to becoming a classic poet himself." --Ray Olson, Booklist "Gioia gained prominence during the 1980s as a crusader on behalf of the New Formalists--poets who wrote about everyday lives and losses in determinedly accessible, traditional modes and metres . . . His real gift is for light verse; "Elegy with Surrealist Proverbs as Refrain" has a seriocomic interest beyond its absurdly reduced subjects (Andre Breton, Apollinaire, and others), and the songs from Gioia's libretto Nosferatu stand out for their verve." --Publishers Weekly
