Congratulations to Dr. Dennis Barone on Publication of New Poetry Anthology
University of Saint Joseph Professor of English and American Studies Dennis Barone, Ph.D., has edited a new poetry collection entitled, Garnet Poems, An Anthology of Connecticut Poetry Since 1776 (Wesleyan University Press; release date: September 6, 2012). Dr. Barone is a prolific writer with 18 titles of fiction and poetry to his name.
The collection features 42 poets whose work has a strong connection to Connecticut, including Wallace Stevens, Lydia Sigourney, Mark Van Doren, Richard Wilbur, Susan Howe, and Elizabeth Alexander. It is the first major anthology of Connecticut poetry to appear since the mid-nineteenth century. Barone supplemented the poems with an editor’s preface, notes that illuminate the poet’s (or poems’) relation to the state, and informative biographies. The book also features a foreword by Dick Allen, the current Connecticut state poet laureate.
