(Schultz, Jeffrey) Jeffrey Schultz’s poems have appeared in Boston Review, Indiana Review, Missouri Review, Prairie Schooner, Poetry, and elsewhere and have been featured on the PBS Newshour’s Art Beat and Poetry Daily. He is a Visiting Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing at Pepperdine University. Schultz is the author of two National Poetry Series Selections: What Ridiculous Things We Could Ask of Each Other and his latest, the 2016 selection Civil Twilight (Ecco), chosen by David St. John. Beginning with the idea that nothing can be seen clearly in the light of the present, the poems in Civil Twilight attempt to resuscitate lyric’s revelatory impulse by taking nothing for granted, forming their materials under the light of a critical gaze. Turning a call to be “civil” on its head, this collection nudges the reader toward revolution.
