Don Bogen

This is a collection about time—about memory, and remembrance, and how the past makes itself manifest in the world. A desk, a mailbox, a house delivering its own autobiography: in these poems, objects hold history, even if they’ve grown obsolescent, even when they’ve been forgotten.

Don Bogen is the author of five books of poems, including Immediate Song​, Luster and An Algebra, along with a critical book on Theodore Roethke and a translation of selected poems by the contemporary Spanish poet Julio Martínez Mesanza. Nathaniel Ropes Professor Emeritus at the University of Cincinnati, he serves as editor-at-large of the Cincinnati Review and divides his time between Cincinnati and Martinez, California.
