Poetry from Brendan Galvin

Partway to Geophany (LSU Press, 2020) is the newest collection from acclaimed poet and Boston College alumnus Brendan Galvin. As a naturalist and environmentalist, Galvin’s poems celebrate the wildlife and landscape, particularly of his beloved Cape Cod. In Partway to Geophany, Galvin also reflects on the passage of time and love and loss. From the publisher: “His masterful use of the narrative lyric produces poems of great mystery and intimacy, in tones varying from grave to playful, as he reflects on the cruelties of time and the pleasures of being alive.” Galvin is the author of 18 poetry collections, including Habitat: New and Selected Poems, 1965–2005, a finalist for the National Book Award. In 2015, Galvin was the cover story for Boston College Magazine.
