  • Riffraffby Stephen Cushman

    LSU Press 2011; US$ 9.95

    Stephen Cushman’s Riffraff embodies the spirit of its title, a Middle English word for “every particle” or “things of small value.” In this striking collection, shards and scraps of the impoverished, overlooked, and distasteful—badgering crows, a prostitute, the speaker’s own forgotten dreams, toothless dogs rolling in deer offal—become occasions to... more...

  • The Red Listby Stephen Cushman

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 9.95

    The "red list" of Stephen Cushman's new volume of poetry is the endangered species register, and the book begins and ends with the bald eagle, a bird that bounded back from the verge of extinction. The volume marks the inevitability of such changes, from danger to safety, from certainty to uncertainty, from joy to sadness and back again. In a single... more...

  • Fictions of Form in American Poetryby Stephen Cushman

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.07

    In the 1830s Alexis de Tocqueville prophesied that American writers would slight, even despise, form--that they would favor the sensational over rational order. He suggested that this attitude was linked to a distinct concept of democracy in America. Exposing the inaccuracies of such claims when applied to poetry, Stephen Cushman maintains that American... more...

  • Hotheadby Stephen Cushman

    LSU Press 2018; US$ 9.95

    Hothead by Stephen Cushman is a complicated book-length poem broken by haikus. Cushman’s primary subjects are sound, rhythm, words, and language and their place in an increasingly perplexing world. Deeply engaging and carefully crafted, Hothead rewards thoughtful attention. more...

  • Belligerent Museby Stephen Cushman; Gary W. Gallagher

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 14.99

    War destroys, but it also inspires, stimulates, and creates. It is, in this way, a muse, and a powerful one at that. The American Civil War was a particularly prolific muse--unleashing with its violent realities a torrent of language, from soldiers' intimate letters and diaries to everyday newspaper accounts, great speeches, and enduring literary works.... more...

  • The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poeticsby Roland Greene; Stephen Cushman; Clare Cavanagh; Jahan Ramazani; Paul Rouzer
