9780822958390: Natural Causes: Poems (Pitt Poetry Series)

Death haunts the pages of Natural Causes, but so does compassion and love. There is little darkness here, and less despair, despite the abundance of cemeteries, loss, and ghosts both real and imagined.

Mark Cox’s youthful bravado has given way in these poems to an assured sense of understatement. The weight of fatherhood, the loss of a grandmother, the fear of loneliness these are the details around which Cox plumbs the depths of mortality and memory.

Fully comfortable with the domestic tableau from which he writes, this is a poet never complacent. The penchants for metaphor and the resonant turn of phrase that informed Cox’s earlier work remain as vibrant as ever, indeed are heightened, as he masterfully affirms and celebrates the range of familial complexity and human connectedness.

From the Back Cover:

"There's a gravity and a sorrowful wisdom in Mark Cox's new poems that make the work of most of the other poets of his generation seem frivolous. . . . He knows that the principal business of the lyric is heartbreak and understands that our stories are personal and communal at once."-David Wojahn

"[Cox] is in a sense, an archaeologist digging at what's right before our eyes to reveal the 'dark black' underpinnings-the rage, the longings, the self-delusion that betray our on-again-off-again relationship with mortality. Unflinching and beautifully made, these poems seem cynical only at first glance-then perplexed and tender."-Leslie Ullman

"Wonder and grief-even amid the junk of American culture, even while being buried alive in time, the deep self has never stopped feeling in Mark Cox's poems. He is a wise, wry, lyrical veteran of the deep water; there is no one like him."-Tony Hoagland

"One of the best books I've read in years. In a style that's brash, offbeat, tough minded and big hearted, these poems explore the fundamental mysteries of love between parent and child, self and other, self and world. Beyond the inventive language and formal range, what makes this work so memorable is Cox's refusal to look away from even the hardest facts of 'unadulterated sorrow.'"-Alan Shapiro

About the Author:

Mark Cox, professor of creative writing at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, has received many prominent honors and awards. He is the author of three previous books of poetry, including Thirty-Seven Years from the Stone.
