Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "We have in Vogelsang a poet furious with history but attempting a mad escape. It's a swollen poetry, maximal at the least and packed with his rare rage.

The stories are ardent; the double binds are musical. The museums in his poetry are perturbed or disturbed spaces, and the language of surveillance and trembling is upon us: the poetics of a panicked or manic Kafka"—David Shapiro.

About the Author

He appears frequently in anthologies such as The Best American Poetry (Scribners), The Pushcart Prize, The New Breadloaf Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, and American Hybrid (W.W. Norton and Co.), and is the recipient of the Juniper Prize, a California Arts Council fellowship, and three National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in poetry.
