Hoppenthaler’s Work Appears ins Two Venues
Two poems about OCD from John Hoppenthaler’s new book, Night Wing over Metropolitan Area, are discussed in an article in Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal.
His poem “The Nature of Nature” appears in the new issue of The Greensboro Review
Hoppenthaler’s fourth collection gives voice to a hard-earned weariness that acknowledges but resists resignation. As Grammy Award-winning songwriter Rosanne Cash puts it, “Hoppenthaler’s attention to the specifics of nature—hummingbirds, Japanese maples, snowfall—are like embroidery, stitched through and holding together the sharp memories and images of loss, longing, regret, and hope.”
