Robert Bensen publishes sixth poem collection

English instructor Robert Bensen’s sixth collection of poems, Before, has been published by Five Oaks Press. As the title suggests, life-changing events can happen before we know it. Only afterward do we start to understand their significance, as they stay fresh in our memories and share in the mystery of existence. Many of these poems revisit such times in the writer’s life and the lives of others as well.

Readers have said:

“Before brims with the ordinary lives of neighbors and family, where little girls die suddenly of meningitis, people are mistreated or loved, and men in their garages never finish repairing their motorcycles or their wives’ pie plates. Life, the book reminds us, is tragic, life is funny, and art shows us these wholes. The language is all ruckus and grace and humanity, and the words won’t go away.” – Carol Frost

“Here is a beautiful wide-ranging collection of poems by one of the best poets now writing in these United States. There are exquisite lyrics, explosive political poems, explorations of little-known historic places, people, events. This is a major collection of poems:  it will delight, astonish, and educate those who are lucky enough to find and enjoy it for themselves.” – Carter Revard (Osage), author of An Eagle Nation and Family Matters/Tribal Affairs

“Robert Bensen is a poet of great—and ever more necessary—balance. He opens the register wide, writing with honesty, insight, and a superb ear. Reading his poems, we feel the bubble in the level go right to dead center.” – Sven Birkerts, AGNI

“A tuned, well-tempered distemper springs from these poems. Robert Bensen grasps our mortal coil, that hot-white internal wrestling, with exacting force and grace.” – Ishion Hutchinson, author of House of Lords and Commons
