Tom Yuill

Tom Yuill's first book of poetry, Medicine Show, was published by the University of Chicago Press. Of it Robert Pinsky writes, "the book's brilliant imitations and adaptations cast a raking eye on Texas versions of the quasi-Byronic hero." Rosanna Warren writes, "Yuill wrings his own tunes from Texas stomp, the Rolling Stones and the lyric masters of English. He's reinventing fireworks." He has new poems and translations published or forthcoming in, among others, Dalhousie Review, Great River Review and the anthology Devouring the Green: Fear of a Human Planet, An Anthology of New Writing, edited by Sam Witt. He also has an interview with Tim Seibles forthcoming in Dalhousie Review next winter. He has taught poetry at Boston University, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and University of Iowa, among others. This year he is teaching at Old Dominion University.
