Mark Wunderlich

Mrs. Dalloway's, 2904 College Avenue, Berkeley, CA

Launch celebration for The Earth Avails (Graywolf Press), the anticipated new book by Mark Wunderlich, whose poetry “reminds us how fully the spirit can illuminate the depths.” (The New Yorker). Wine and sparkling water will be served.

The Earth Avails evokes an all-but-lost history, when every setting, thought, and action was imbued with ritual...Wunderlich’s poems reinvent these traditions with lyrical and emotive force for a new century of readers.

“Humility, practicality, self-chastisement and hope emerge, in unrhymed couplets, musical paragraphs, and stately free verse, through language at once restrained and humane.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“No matter the topic, Wunderlich almost infallibly strikes a tone of humane feeling and aesthetic refinement.” —Contemporary Poetry Review

Mark Wunderlich is the author of two previous poetry collections, Voluntary Servitude and The Anchorage, winner of the Lambda Literary Award. He has published poems in The Paris Review, Yale Review, Slate, Tin House, Poetry, Ploughshares, and elsewhere. His work has been included in over thirty anthologies. Wunderlich teaches at Bennington College and lives in upstate New York.
