Poetry. IN THE WORLD AS IS: NEW & SELECTED POEMS, 1972-2015, Colorado Poet Laureate Joseph Hutchison gives voice to pain and passion, sorrow and joy, longing and exaltation. His poems seem to result from a wrestling with angelsthe angels of transformation we all must confront to survive what Robert Penn Warren called "this century, and moment, of mania." This poetry, dark as it can be, is also filled with compassion for the wounded psyche, the torn family, the persistence of nature, the gift of deep love, and the healing power of art. These poems sing with a sensuousness born of experience, insisting that there is more to everything than meets the eye. As Paul Èluard put it, "There is another world, but it is in this one." The world as is.

He was a founding editor of the literary magazine Pendragon and co-founder of Wayland Press, a literary publisher that for more than a decade produced books of both poetry and fiction. He is the author of 16 collections of poems, including The Satire Lounge, Marked Men, Thread of the Real, Bed of Coals (winner of the Colorado Poetry Award), and the Colorado Governor's Award volume Shadow-Light. He also co-edited, with Andrea Watson, the FutureCycle Press Good Works anthology Malala: Poems for Malala Yousafzai (all profits to the Malala Foundation), and with Gary Schroeder, the anthology A Song for Occupations: Poems About the American Way of Work.

Joseph has two children, Susannah and Brian, and lives with his wife, Iyengar Yoga instructor Melody Madonna, in the mountains southwest of Denver.

A fine collection by a masterful poet

On October 15, 2016, at The Tattered Cover book store (Colfax) in Denver, Colorado, I had the opportunity to hear Joe Hutchison read from his new book "The World As Is: New & Selected Poems 1972-2015." After the excellent reading, I spent the next two weeks reflecting upon the wide range of work in this latest collection. These are accessible, well-crafted poems by a master poet, one whose poems are characterized by wit, humor, and elegance, as well as an emotional power to move the reader with their depth of observation and insight. During the reading, Joe was asked if "clarity" was his Credo, and he responded with a lucidity I admired, and later found again in the mindful and accomplished poems of this masterful book. I highly recommend this fine collection. Dan Guenther
