Poetry. Inspired by such thinkers as Deleuze, Badiou, and Agamben and such subjects as mathematical paradox and scientific method, Daniel Rounds's debut, SOME DISTANT LATERAL PRESENT, is poetry as intellectual, emotional, and phenomenological argument. These are poems that challenge the reader even as they challenge what poetry does, what it can do, even what it is willing to address as a form.
Daniel Rounds' poetry has been featured in Aufgabe, 3rd Bed, Goodfoot, XConnect, Fish Drum Magazine, and American River Review. His first book of poetry, SOME DISTANT LATERAL PRESENT, was released by Ad Lumen Press in 2014 and EROS ZERO was published by Ad Lumen Press in 2017. He lives and works in Sacramento.Author City: SACRAMENTO, CA USA
