Acclaimed poet Brendan Galvin, a Boston College alumnus, will publish his 19th book this fall, a collection of new poems called Partway to Geophany (Louisiana State University Press). Much of Galvin’s poetry is inspired by the national landscape of his beloved Cape Cod. Find here a selection of some of his poetry collections. His poetry book Habitat was a finalist for a National Book Award. Galvin is the recipient of the O. B. Hardison, Jr., Poetry Prize from the Folger Shakespeare Library. As he told Boston College Magazine, “I just keep on doing it [writing poetry]. It’s an enormous pleasure.” More of Galvin’s poems.
