More than twenty years in the making, Anthony Robinson's long-awaited first book collects poems of tremendous beauty, intelligence, and depth.
After more than 20 years of publishing poems in magazines and chapbook, Anthony Robinson has brought together an incredible collection for his long-awaited first full-length book, FAILURES OF THE POETS. Full of beauty, heartbreak, humor, pain, absurdity, sorrow, friendship, and love, as well as bridges, family, lakes, God, feathers, and food, this is a book brimming over with thinking and with things, as Robinson's intense attention collides with the world. “All winter we waited / For the sun and now he’s here but will / He make it through another year?”
Anthony Robinson began writing poems while serving in the US Navy in the day-glo 1990s. He matriculated to the University of Oregon, where he later taught, in various capacities, for ten years. He currently lives and writes in rural Oregon. FAILURES OF THE POETS is his first full- length book.
