    William Stobb has won acclaim for wide-ranging poetry that features tender realism, jazzy dissonance, luminous descriptions, and, in the words of Donald Revell, a "strange and elegantly accomplished serenity of tensions attenuated to their uttermost."

    William Stobb’s poems attend calmly to a dynamic world. Nature, family, and friends are among the shifting systems where Stobb finds poems.
