Ronald Wallace is best known for his wit and good humor, his synthesis of technical skill and strong emotion, his sensory immediacy, his accessibility, and charm. Now in Time's Fancy, his fifth collection, Wallace explores the tragic aspects of life more fully, fashioning a declarative poetry that is darker and deeper, more meditative and complex.
About the Author
Praise For Time's Fancy (Pitt Poetry Series)…
“Part of what sets Wallace apart from other poets who write about personal and family life is his virtuosity with complex forms. . . . Yet Wallace is no mere technician; he weds considerable formal command with grace, passion, intelligence and wit.”
"Wallace writes a poetry accessible to the general reader: a flexible, idiomatic language capable of moving from lighthearted spoofing to grim pessimism, sometimes all in the same short poem."
