Dailiness: Forthcoming Essay Collection by Mark Jarman
Mark Jarman, Centennial Professor of English, has completed a new collection of essays. Dailiness: Essays on Poetry will be released by Paul Dry Books on February 18, 2020, and is available for preorder now.
“In this wonderful collection of essays, Mark Jarman explores with wit and passion the practice of poetry―of making it, of reading it, of living it. In his vivid analyses of works by Brooks, Boisseau, Donne, Herbert, Rukeyser and Twichell, among others, he explores how the poems and their authors negotiate time and mortality, faith and devotion. He also offers an intimate examination of his own gorgeous work and how it comes onto the page. A delight for readers and writers of poetry.”
