The Triumph of Life by Jean Day

Three sets of short poems from life, at times pointedly personal and at others omniscient, partisan, comic and furious. Taking its title from Shelley's unfinished poem "The Triumph of Life," the book refers periodically to the great procession of history and people named there and shares the nerve of Shelley's unintentionally final question.

Jean Day has published six books of poetry and several chapbooks, among them THE TRIUMPH OF LIFE (Insurance Editions, 2018), DAYDREAM (Litmus 2017), Early Bird (O'Clock, 2014), and Enthusiasm (Adventures in Poetry, 2006). Her work has also appeared in numerous anthologies, including Nineteen Lines: A Drawing Center Writing Anthology (Roof, 2007), Best American Poems 2004 (Scribner, 2004), Moving Borders: Three Decades of Innovative Writing by Women (Talisman House, 1998), and In the American Tree (National Poetry Foundation, 1986, reprinted 2002). She lives in Berkeley, where she works as managing editor of Representations, an interdisciplinary humanities journal published by the University of California Press.
