Daniel Anderson poetry "I suppose the one thing all three of these poems share is that none of them ended up where I thought they would. Initially I intended for `Provinces' to be a brief sketch about some kind of intelligence officer and his smug underlings. `The Hills, Beautiful Hills' began as a meditation on an old photograph of my three aunts in childhood in their bathing clothes on a dock in West Virginia. `Pardon and Amnesty' started out as `Forsythia in Snow' and didn't really gain any traction for me until I moved that image into the background. In the end, for better or for worse, all of them outgrew their original conceits and expanded into poems which, I hope, pushed beyond the simplicity of those early images that attracted my attention in the first place." Daniel Anderson's work has appeared in Poetry, the Kenyon Review, New England Review, the Yale Review, the Best American Poetry and Southwest Review, among others. He has published two books of poetry, Drunk in Sunlight (Johns Hopkins University Press) and January Rain (Story Line Press) and edited The Selected Poems of Howard Nemerov (Swallow Press/Ohio University Press).
