Poetry. The long-awaited second collection by Columbia University professor and poetry editor of Boston Review, Timothy Donnelly's THE CLOUD CORPORATION is an absolute tour de force, fully investing itself in the possibilities of language and intelligence—by way of a traditional and abiding faith in poetry—to illuminate the ceaseless advances of personal, political, and social contingency.

"The poems of Timothy Donnelly astonish by their inventive intelligence.... We learn that self-knowledge can be adequate to knowledge of the world, in all its violence and complexity."—Allen Grossman


Timothy Donnelly's first book of poems, Twenty-seven Props for a Production of Eine Lebenszeit, was published by Grove Press in 2003. His work has been translated into German and Italian and has also appeared in many anthologies such as Legitimate Dangers: American Poets of the New Century, ISN'T IT ROMANTIC: 100 LOVE POEMS BY YOUNGER AMERICAN POETS, Joyful Noise: An Anthology of American Spiritual Poetry, and Poet, Poems, Poetry edited by Helen Vendler. He is a poetry editor for Boston Review and teaches in the Writing Program at Columbia University's School of the Arts. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two daughters.
