John Estes directs the Creative Writing Program at Malone University in Canton, Ohio where he lives with his wife and sons. He holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Missouri, where he concentrated in poetics and environmental literature. Recent poems have appeared in Tin House, New Orleans Review, The Southern Review, Iron Horse, and AGNI. His first book, Kingdom Come, was published in 2011 by C&R Press, and he is author of two chapbooks: Breakfast with Blake at the Laocoön (Finishing Line Press, 2007) and Swerve (PSA, 2009), which was selected by C.K. Williams for a National Chapbook Fellowship from the Poetry Society of America.
“These are the poems of the perplexed. More specifically, they are the poems of the
perplexed but good-
lineage includes Chesterton, Orwell, and Lippmann. They are, moreover, poems that treat domestic life—life in common—with due respect, and with intermittent awe. John Estes has employed a remarkable range of learning, and remarkable skill in shaping these lines, and pressing them into service.”
“John Estes’ poems–precise, quizzical, erudite, playful–remind us of the revelatory work wit can do when matched to a sensuous mind.”
