Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring 2009 Poetry List
“This is a perfect introduction to Pulitzer Prize winner Dunn, as the many dog-eared pages of my volume will attest. Dunn addresses issues large and small, though mostly large: love; death; divinity; morality; responsibility. Words are perfectly chosen, and so many poems deserve to be read out loud, and often. From What Men Want, Dunn concludes 'I've always needed paper and pencil/in order to speak as little as I should./After the power to choose/a man wants the power to erase.'”
-- Leslie, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL


Description
What Goes On displays the evolving style and sensibility of a major award-winning poet, and a traceable growth that has blossomed into a provocative confrontation with questions of consciousness and existence. Stephen Dunn s poems probe life s big questions without ever losing sight of the significance of the mundane."
