Mark Jarman refuses to enter the mainstream (if there is such a thing in poetry) and wants to create narrative poetry inside the confines of rigid structure. 'Ground Swell' is one of the finest contemporary poems by any poet.

this collection is a nice little collection of poems, but outside of the 20 unholy sonnets, nothing great. still, it's a nice collection from a contemporary poet.
