Poetry. "I honor and admire these poems for their groundwork understanding.Here, oppression is shown forth as a condition of language, a violence of syntax. And here, in resistance to oppression, extraordinariness lifts a beautiful, if harried, affirming sound. With signal integrity, the poet exploits no popular catastrophe but chooses, instead, to enter the mythic heart of catastrophe, there to make new myths"—Donald Revell.


Brian Henry is the author of ten books of poetry, most recently STATIC & SNOW (Black Ocean, 2015). His translation of Aleš Šteger's The Book of Things appeared from BOA Editions in 2010 and won the Best Translated Book Award. He also translated Tomaž Šalamun's Woods and Chalices and Aleš Debeljak's Smugglers. He has received numerous awards for his poetry and translations, including fellowships from the NEA, the Howard Foundation, and the Slovenian Academy of Arts and Sciences.
