UNH Poet Publishes New Volume

book cover

Professor of English and poet David Rivard has published his sixth book of poetry, “Standoff” (Graywolf Press). In this latest volume, Rivard asks an essential question: In a world of noise, of global anxiety and media distraction, how can we speak to each other with honesty?

Former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky wrote in “The Washington Post”: “Rivard’s poems move . . . with an exhilarating, smart pace of association and evocation. The speed of mind, compressing details and emotions, covering the maximum distance in the least time, gives this writing its thrill. . . . These street-wise, book-wise, eloquent poems have a bracing sureness and scope.”
