Description

Selected for the 2006 National Poetry Series by August Kleinzahler

William Stobb?s poems attend calmly to a dynamic world. Nature, family, and friends are among the shifting systems where Stobb finds poems. His fluency in a variety of forms?from the measured tenderness of Jay Meek to the oceanic surrealism of Donald Revell?enacts the tension between order and entropy in the physical world we live in. ?Stobb has nerve, talent, and engages this madly accelerating, and often nearly indecipherable, world in what?s called real time,? writes August Kleinzahler, ?and he manages it without sacrificing emotional truth.?
