Publications

Maurice Manning (poet) Kentucky poet Maurice Manning gains a national reputation The

Manning's first collection, Lawrence Booth's Book of Visions, won the Yale Series of Younger Poets Competition in 2001 (under W. S. Merwin). Dwight Garner, literary critic for The New York Times, said in a review of the book that "Manning displays not just terrific cunning but terrific aim--he nails his images the way a restless boy, up in a tree with a slingshot, nails anything sentient that wanders into view". His fourth collection, The Common Man (Houghton Mifflin, 2010), deals with religion, Kentucky, whiskey, and a donkey, and was praised as a "fine collection" by Jacob Sunderlin in the Sycamore Review. During his Guggenheim fellowship, he was working on his fifth collection, tentatively titled The Gone and the Going Away. His newest collection, One Man's Dark, was published in 2016 by Copper Canyon Press and focuses on rural America, and on living life in close contact with the natural world.
