“These precise, plain-spoken poems are limned by a subtle music, not to mention a lyric grace that is never overplayed. For in a world as harsh as this one, a world delimited by war, beauty is as appalling as it is necessary. Hugh Martin’s great achievement is to remind us of this necessity, and to assert the power of poetry as witness and as solace.” —James Harms

Hugh Martin is from Macedonia, Ohio, and served in Iraq in 2004 with the Army National Guard. He graduated from Muskingum University in 2009 and is a first-year MFA candidate in poetry at Arizona State University.
