The Poetry of J.C. Todd in The Fox Chase Review


Night Walking with Nathaniel By Dennis Daly

Night-frcov copy

Dos Madres Press is now taking Pre-Publication orders for Night Walking with Nathaniel. The release date is April 30, 2014.  Go here to check out info:

In Night Walking with Nathaniel, Dennis Daly skillfully draws a vivid panorama of  fascinating Salem, a town he knows profoundly well.  Its richly shadowed past contrasts ironically with its present: on Gallows Hill stands the wreckage of a playground, the Puritan Motel is now a scene of revelry.  Nathaniel Hawthorne, poet Jones Very, and innocents accused of witchcraft live and breathe again, alongside our contemporaries.  This is one of the more satisfying collections of American poems in years, a generous array of deftly crafted work, memorable for its storytelling, imagery, and verbal music.  Even readers unfamiliar with Salem will find it captivating. – XJ Kennedy

In a time when other poets have forgotten the power of a metered witnessing of history, Daly brings a rare compassion to a community’s misfortune and celebrates its dignity.  These poems are precise, the lines embellished with a craftsman’s beauty. – Afaa Michael Weaver

Dennis Daly will be reading at Poets @ Pennypack on May 10th
