About the Author
BIN RAMKE, former editor of a book series for the University of Georgia Press, current editor of the Denver Quarterly and holder of the Phipps Chair in English at the University of Denver, studied mathematics in college before turning to poetry. He continues to see similar patterns arising from language and mathematics in all aspects of human consciousness and human behavior. But his childhood in rural Louisiana and Texas is also a part of the central concerns and beauty that his work tries to engage. Ramke has written nine previous poetry collections.
Reviews
"[Ramke] is the rare poet who seems to become more himself with each new book, rather than more like an imitation of himself. . . . And the new poems here are among Ramke's best." "--Publishers Weekly", starrred review
"He defies the conventions of both the traditional lyric and its antagonists." --"Chicago Review"
"Ramke's poetry is nothing if not an attempt to find the lips and tongue of history." --"Double Room"
"The translucent transience of life flowing has seldom been more poignantly and pertinently evoked. . . . He is our Heraclitus." -John Ashbery, author, "Self Portrait in a Convex Mirror"
"It is [Ramke's] unflinching comparison of fault and perfection that makes his poems believable." --"Boston Review"
