Glamourby Jonathan Holden
GLAMOUR is a long-awaited book by master poet and critic Jonathan Holden. Holden holds a conversation with his reader about mathematics, painting, photography, and the vicissitudes of love. He grieves his genius father and celebrates rich daily moments, as detailed as fractals. He is first Kansas poet Laureate and Distinguished Professor at Kansas State University. Holden has won numerous awards, including two National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowships. In 1995, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa chose Holden's poetry collection THE SUBLIME for the Vassar Miller Prize. His poetry appears in Paris Review, Harpers, Kenyon Review, and many others.Holden has published twenty books of poetry, creative prose, and critical essays.
"Jonathan Holden is one of our most intelligent poets.... It is not always easy to be both brilliant and generous of spirit. It is our good fortune that Holden wears his learning lightly and with such unaffected grace and charm."
Ted Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate
"Holden is an omnivore, capturing in his nets all the variegated experience of the 21st century."
Denise Low, 2nd Kansas Poet Laureate
