Publisher Comments:

Daniel Groves presents a debut collection of tightly rhymed poems that, through adherence to form, unlock a power in language to surprise and illuminate—a power too often dormant in writing that eschews these conventions. Enchanted by the wit and distance of his canonical predecessors, Groves rhymes “Diet Pepsi” with “catalepsy” and “Guido” with “credo,” and takes this work from irony to introspection in the course of a few lines.
 
Framed as meditations that playfully depart from acts of photocopying, or shelving journals in a library, or interstate travel by bus, these poems represent an acerbic inner life but offer visceral satisfactions.

About the Author

Daniel Groves’s poems have appeared in such publications as the Paris Review, Yale Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, Poetry, Drunken Boat, and Smartish Pace. He lives in Rhode Island.
