James Dennis writes with erudition, wit, and a breath of fresh West Texas air on a dazzling array of historical, biblical, and classical topics. Here are poems woven of personal experience and a genuine love for the world; poems of hard-won faith and unflinching empathy in a voice brave, wry, and bracingly original. – Noel Crook, author of Salt Moon.

Listening Devices

This collection of poetry explores the nature of language, love and loss, our history, and the simple joy of being alive. It is organized into four sections, or quartets, each of which is based upon a piece of music that sets the mood for the poems in that section. Texas poet laureate Carol Coffee Reposa says of Listening Devices: “a near Renaissance breadth of vision…Dennis is a poetic wizard.”
