Sinopsis: Krypton Nights, Bryan Dietrich's first volume of poetry, is the year 2001 winner of the Paris Review Prize in Poetry. The simplest thing to say about Krypton Nights is that almost every poem within concerns the DC Comics comic book character Superman. The result is priceless. Sometimes funny and often heartbreaking, these poems are anything but trite. Each is a careful construction and serious meditation on our 21st century reality, how we feel and who we are. This book's indulgence in pop culture recalls Dietrich's fellow Kansan Albert Goldbarth, and, like Goldbarth, Dietrich is a stunning poet who is poised to reveal to us our own identity, as quirky or quacky as that may be.
Biografía del autor: Born in Oklahoma City in 1965, Bryan Dietrich grew up watching bad horror movies and dreaming of becoming a comic book artist. He received his Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Southern California in 1988 and his Ph.D. in English from the University of North Texas in 1994. He is a recipient of the Discovery/The Nation Award, a Writers At Work Fellowship, and the Eve of St. Agnes Prize. His poems have appeared in the Paris Review, Prairie Schooner, The Nation, Chelsea, Quarterly West, The Western Humanities Review and many other journals. Currently, he is Chair of the English Department at Newman University in Wichita, Kansas, and is a proud member of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fan Club.
