THE DESTROYER IN THE GLASS IS THE 110th RECIPIENT OF THE YALE SERIES OF YOUNGER POETS PRIZE

“ ‘The Destroyer in the Glass’ impresses at once with its wedding of intellect, heart, sly humor, and formal dexterity, all in the service of negotiating those moments when an impulse toward communion with others competes with an instinct for a more isolated self. The poems both examine and embody the nexus of joy and sorrow, of certainty and confusion, without which there’d be none of the restlessness that makes us uniquely human. Warren’s vision is a generous one indeed —and itself a gift.” --Carl Phillips, Judge's Citation
"The poems are lithe and fluid, rhythmic and pointed...Warren offers a raw and piercing vision: 'I study to live my death well./ Through the chilly forest,// my mind ravens on ahead/ of my life// like a silent, monstrous bulldozer/ chased by a chariot with bells.' " - Publisher's Weekly
"This book interrogates the mysteries of self and other in a quest for empathy, that most elusive of moral values and perhaps the one most reliant on the poet’s powers of imagination." - Scout Poetry
