CHANCE DIVINE Winner of the 2016 FIELD Poetry Prize
"Jeffrey Skinner has a metaphysical thirst so large and fierce and energetic that it can only slake itself in the ocean of language. And that is what it does in these amazing poems, which are amazing both for their complexity and sophistication and their buoyant clarity and immediacy."
THE MANSION OF HAPPINESS
"With his wild intelligence, humor, and command of form, Loomis's poems reveal the world of the unseen that would remain hidden without the generous mind uncovering for us what was always there. The Mansion of Happiness is an instruction manual for living a life of appreciation, contemplation, and joy."
BLOOD HYPHEN Winner of the 2015 FIELD Poetry Prize
"Kenny Williams is a writer of apostate, iconoclastic, and often-absurdist parables, and his poems are rendered with a formal concision that makes their tragicomic sensibility all the more resonant. Blood Hyphen is one of the most distinctive and self-possessed debut collections that I have read in a very long time."
PRELUDES AND FUGUES
"One of the most singular lyric voices to emerge in France in the last quarter century, Emmanuel Moses is well served by veteran American poet-translator Marilyn Hacker, whose translations from the poet's three latest collections have a way of casting their own spell."
