The Origins of Tragedy & Other Poems

Kenneth Rosen’s poems are, at turns, idyllic, comic, conciliatory, passionate. He finds his imagery in nature, in history and literature, in contemporary political discourse and in mythology. He finds a thread with artists from the past who like the poet himself, perpetually seek to make sense of the turmoil of life. In this, his seventh collection, Rosen’s diverse subjects—childhood, sex, politics and music--illustrate the full breadth of his poetic vision.
