A Poverty of Words by Frederick Pollack


Poetry by Frederick Pollack

What Are People Saying About This Book?

“In his rich new collection, Frederick Pollack has opinions and observations about everything. Pollack is ‘didactic’ in the very best sense of the word—and learn I did from his unflinching, never ingratiating poems.”
Jane Shore (Professor, George Washington University)

“If you’ve never read this poet, prepare for one of the greatest breakthroughs in your reading life. Yes, Frederick Pollack is that good.”
Robert McDowell (Co-Founder and editor, Story Line Press)

“I enjoy Fred Pollack’s poems, and consider them necessary because they do what poetry should do, grapple with the important. When I dwell on his poems, I can see the images leave the page and come to life.”
Daniel J. Langton (Professor, SF State; winner, Edgar Allan Poe Award)

“Pollack has a talent for lines that will draw you up short. It’s the kind of thing you might think couldn’t be sustained through the sheer volume of poetry in this collection, but you’d be wrong. Every poem deserves a second look.”
Krishan Coupland (Editor, Neon Literary Magazine)

About the Poet

Frederick Pollack was born in Chicago; he lived
for many years in California but it didn’t take.
He now lives and teaches in Washington, DC.

Pollack’s books, The Adventure and Happiness, are
both book-length narrative poems (Story Line Press).
More of his work can be found in various journals
and publications each year. His updated biography
is available on Amazon.com.

Pollack’s voice belongs to neither the navelgazing
mainstream nor the poststructuralist avant-garde.
