With this volume, acclaimed British poet Alan Jenkins makes his Annerican debut. Lush, joyous, stylish, and sensual, his poetry is a deeply personal exploration of masculinity that recalls Sharon Olds in its visceral impact. Taken from collections spanning over a decade, A Short History of Snakes at last introduces to American readers one of England's most accomplished and engaging poets.
