About the Author: Thomas Lux

Acclaimed poet and teacher Thomas Lux began publishing haunted, ironic poems that owed much to the Neo surrealist movement in the 1970s Critically lauded from his first book Memory s Handgrenade 1972 , Lux s poetry has gradually evolved towards adirect treatment of immediately available, though no less strange, human experience Often using ironic or sardonic speakers, startlingly apt imagery, careful rhythms, and reaching into history for subject matter, Lux has created a body of work that is at once simple and complex, wildly imaginative and totally relevant Lux is vocal about the tendency in contemporary poetry to confuse difficulty with originality In an interview with Cerise Press, Lux stated There s plenty of room for strangeness, mystery, originality, wildness, etc in poems that also invite the reader into the human and alive center about which the poem circles Known for pairing humor with sharp existentialism, Lux commented in the Los Angeles Times, I like to make the reader laugh and then steal that laugh, right out of the throat Because I think life is like that, tragedy right alongside humor Born in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1946 to working class parents, Lux attended Emerson College and the University of Iowa Lux s first collections, including Memory s Handgrenade and Sunday Poems 1979 , were grounded in the Neo Surrealist techniques of contemporaries like James Tate and Bill Knott Contemporary Poets contributor Richard Damashek wrote that Lux s early work was intensely personal tormented and tortured, full of complex and disjointed images reflecting an insane and inhospitable world Such early Lux s poems were often portraits of a solo native always strange to the world, observed Elizabeth Macklin in Parnassus, always on the verge of extradition, always beset with allergies to the native element, like a simple vase not tolerating water With Half Promised Land 1986 , Lux began the turn that characterizes much of his later work The book foregoes many of the surrealist techniques of Sunday and focuses instead on an increasingly careful and accurate depiction of the real world In later books like The Drowned River 1990 and the Kingsley Tufts award winning Split Horizon 1994 , Lux utilizes a conversational tone to describe what one reviewer called the invisible millions populating the poems Describing his own progress in an interview with the Cortland Review, he said I kind of drifted away from Surrealism and the arbitrariness of that I gotinterested in subjects, identifiable subjects other than my own angst or ennui or things like that I got better and better, I believe, at the craft I paidandattention to the craft Making poems rhythmical and musical and believable as human speech and as distilled and tight as possible is very important to me I started looking outside of myself a lotfor subjects I read a great deal of history, turnedoutward as opposed to inward Lux s other collections include New and Selected Poems 1975 1995 1997 , The Street of Clocks 2001 , The Cradle Place 2004 and God Particles 2008 , a collection Elizabeth Hoover described as lucid and morally urgent in the Los Angeles Times Thomas Lux taught at Sarah Lawrence for over twenty years and is affiliated with the Warren Wilson MFA program currently the Bourne chair in poetry at the Georgia Institute of Technology, he is a renowned teacher In the Cortland Review interview, he described teaching s greatest rewards you see people get excited by poetry You see their lives changed by poetry You see someone beginning to learn how to articulate and express themselves in this very tight art form, in this very distilled manner You see all sorts and hear all sorts of really human stuff, really human business His many awards and honors include the Kinglsley Tufts Poetry Award, a Guggenheim fel
