Description

Dara Wier's poems call to mind "the philosophical comedy of Wallace Stevens and Wislawa Szymborska . . . and] draw a reader away from a recognizable world into one in which women waltz with bears, houseflies chat with colonels, and the absence of sound makes a material presence."--Harvard Review
