Bouchard, Daniel. Some Mountains Removed. Poetry. In his new collection of poetry, Daniel Bouchard responds to our contemporary dystopia with exacting description and incisive criticism. "The cognitive dissonance between what we are in daily life and what we know about the history we inhabit in America: this is the matter of this book. It is laid out in such a way that we can see what our minds are made of, and study the problem. Here the rhetoric of new poetry ("Hades faces environmental crises") is at ease with both beauty and corruption"-Fanny Howe.
