James Zoller, looking fine.

James Zoller, looking fine and a-poet.

Dr. James Zoller is a English Professor at Houghton College in Western New York. The three poems that we recorded are from his most recent book of poetry, Living on the Flood Plain (may be purchased at WordFarm ). I am no critic on poetry, but from my slight knowledge I would say that Dr. Zoller’s poetry strongly exhibits the qualities of essential verse; it is verse that moves the listener or reader with it’s mimetic rhythms, and clear subtle messages. Dr. Zoller is the author of another book of poetry, Simple Clutter, and has been featured in Antaeus, BlueLine, Zone 3, The Kentucky Poetry Review, Oxford Magazine, Other Poetry (uk), The Best of the Prose Poem, The Christian Century, The Laurel Review, Blue Violin, and The Greenfield Review. He also is a member of a fantastic family.
