Poetry. "It's heartening--a complete relief, in fact--to finally have a lengthy tome from Douglas Rothschild, a poet whose independence and observational precision are, for me, unparalleled within the art. Rothschild is a poet of emphasis, analysis, opinion, argument, outrage, anguish, personality, friendship and deep feeling. His walking, talking line, freer within its various formal constraints (Dug is a master of the long poem made of short poems) than any surface-of-the-moment, sounds like no one else. This is a book of tremendous clarity, and I'm grateful for its existence"--Anselm Berrigan.

Douglas Rothschild's life has been one long miasma of failure, disappointment, coffee & overarching desire. Though he has not yet accomplished anything of note, Mr. Rothschild intends to continue on for some time yet. Some of this life, such as it is, has been chronicled in Bill Luoma's WORKS & DAYS & Jennifer Moxley's THE MIDDLE ROOM. Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
