Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Equal parts punk rock and pastoral, [Rohrer has] a voice that seems unearthly in its ability to be detached and simultaneously tender.”—American Poet

Approaching pleasure and terror with the same searching and determined curiosity, Rise Up traverses political, natural, and domestic landscapes with gentle agility. Beautifully crafted surfaces give way to sincere depth.

Matthew Rohrer is the author of A Green Light (2004, shortlisted for the Griffin Prize), Satellite, and A Hummock in the Malookas. He has appeared on NPRs All Things Considered and The Next Big Thing.

Synopsis:

Rohrer turns wide eyes and lyric wit towards the requirements of fatherhood, citizenship, and romantic love.

Synopsis:

Poetry. Matthew Rohrer's RISE UP turns wide eyes and lyric wit toward the requirements of fatherhood, citizenship, and romantic love. Approaching pleasure and terror with the same searching and determined curiosity, RISE UP traverses political, natural, and domestic landscapes with gentle agility. From the poem "Four Romantic Poets:" "Perpetual Halloween. / The Aztec people. / Horror and death. / A man walking down the street. / A man looking intently at a woman. / And running into a fire hydrant. / And crumpling."

About the Author

Matthew Rohrer was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and grew up in Oklahoma. He attended the Iowa Writers' Workshop, University College Dublin, and the University of Michigan, where he won the Avery Hopwood Award for poetry. His first book, A Hummock in the Malookas, was a winner of the National Poetry Series and chosen as a Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1995. Mary Oliver called his work "beautiful and disquieting," and Harvard Review notes that his poems are "everywhere marked by freshness and originality." He has appeared on NPR's All Things Considered - The Book Show, and is a poetry editor of Fence.
