Poet - Editor - Consultant
About In This Room, Alicia Ostriker, award-winning poet, critic, and professor emerita at Rutger's University, says "I imagine the ghosts of Hart Crane and Larry Levis welcoming Terry Lucas into their fraternity. With admiration and delight, I welcome this American life, this American voice."
Michael Waters, critically-acclaimed poet and editor of the definitive anthology, Contemporary American Poetry, says "Lucas moves easily between the seemingly mundane and the transcendental, one world bleeding into the other, toward addressing A common problem: what to do // Now that the world has lost its gods and goddesses. One answer to that problem is to write--and, for us, to read--poems as memorable as these."

NOTE: My essay, "The Future of Poetry in the Twenty-First Century" is not currently available online. I asked it to be removed from the journal that published it due to their inaction in correcting typos in quoted passages from other poets that were not present in the final galleys that I approved. I will alert readers if and when it become available at a future date without the typos. Thank you for your patience.
