By turns intimate, imaginatively historical, and deeply engaged in the paradoxes of languages itself, Its Time belongs to that genealogy of poetry that registers ideas as much as it does feelings. From free verse to subtle regularities of meterical or syllabic verse, from discursive arguments to surreal images, Gibbonss technical range is startling. The poems he collects in Its Time are profoundly thought through, immensely moving, and entirely indispensable.Reginald Gibbons is the author of numerous works of poetry, fiction, and translation, including Sparrow: New and Selected Poems and the novel Sweetbitter. For his verse he has received the Carl Sandburg Award, the John Masefield Award, and the Balcones Poetry Prize. A native of Texas, he lives in Evanston, Illinois, where he is a professor of English at Northwestern University.
