One of our premier poets."—The New York Times "Dubie's dramatic poetry seeks to represent our deepest moments of perception, struggle, and revelation. Out of his voice come the voices of multitudes. Yet his achievement and vision are singular."—American Book Review The Boston Review called Norman Dubie's poems "extraordinary," and the evocative poems of The Volcano certainly are: lyrically intense, hallucinatory, worldly, and precise. In a five-word poem, "A New Moon," he laments, "I will not see it." But there is much he does see: DNA ladders, Sasquatch, Pontius Pilot's mealy figs, and "a calliope of turtles / bobbing in the North Atlantic." -- From publisher description.
