Science and speculation, faith and doubt, reformation and resistance: "politics" consists in navigating the forms of internal discord that we find both within our communities and within ourselves. In The Politics, his first collection of poems, Benjamin Paloff animates these dynamics by orchestrating a grand dialogue among contentious philosophers, ancient heroes, pop icons, and the man on the street. Part-drama, part-treatise, this is a book in which the most modest fragments of history and biography, of physics and imagination, "survive by calling out / to one another."
