Overview

Long neglected or scoffed at by poetry "purists," the prose poem is now taking its rightful place as a distinct and accepted genre in American letters. Johnson’s work as founder and editor of The Prose Poem: An International Journal did much to garner acceptance and respect for the genre among both poets and critics alike. This book, his second collection, is filled with the mystery, humor, and pathos that make this form so appealing and so accessible.

Peter Johnson lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with his wife and son. He teaches at Providence College.
