Overview

Fans of European 19th century verse, thick with symbolism and multi-syllabic, will find little to love in Dan Sklar's work. Sklar's poetry could be characterized as American Primitive, clean and bracing as creek water. Like Whitman, Sklar celebrates the mystery and profundity of the everyday. This is "guy" poetry, muscularly chronicling the days and to-do list of the contemporary American male, helplessly and joyfully committed to the challenges of raising a houseful of boys, teaching sleepy-eyed college students, and handling the ignominies of manuscript rejection letters. Sklar's poems tumble and sing with enormously universal appeal.
-Lisa Beatman, Author of Manufacturing America
