Anticipate the Coming Reservoir

Speakers in Anticipate the Coming Reservoir return to and survey terrain that was once their own and find it strangely defamiliarized. As they process the changes—changes they generally see as suspect—these characters seek, and sometimes find, something like balance between nostalgia and terra incognita. This collection may be, as Natasha Trethewey writes, “his nostos,” but it is also John Hoppenthaler’s paen to existential resolve as it is exhibited by souls who possess, as David Baker describes it, “all our wounded, belated psyches.”
