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
