Preliminary Report
Jon Davis

Punctuated by subversive humor, verbal theatrics and moments of strange, luminous beauty, Davis’s clear, unsentimental poems are meditations and mediations on contemporary existence, and the unreliability of language, emotions, and memory to gather it all in. The poems in Preliminary Report vary from short personal lyrics to prose poems and long meditative pieces, and in subject from global politics to philosophy, mysticism, love and family.

For Preliminary Report, Jon Davis

“Davis is as good as DeLillo at playing off our internal hunger for meaning against surface senselessness. And Davis catches the surface brilliantly.”American Book Review

"[Davis's work has] an intellectual and moral urgency... Although Davis is not a religious poet, he shares Rilke's quest for union [and] seeks an awareness that only multiple points of view can provide."—The Prose Poem: An International Journal

“Davis’s... voice remains among the sharpest and most unique in contemporary poetry.”The Independent
