Robert Siegel is the author of five poetry collections; he has also written several novels, including the Whalesong trilogy which has been translated into seven languages. For 23 years he directed the graduate creative writing program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
“Written over five decades, these poems begin fixed in the human condition, our common experience of an imperfect world. Slowly, under the aegis of the Spirit, they move toward a brighter vision of things: they ask us to ‘dream in that fecund darkness until all shapes are shining.'”
