“A. Staley Groves fits in the heroic tradition of poets that have engaged philosophy on its own terrain, the surface of being. It is of utmost importance for the circulation and development of philosophy that these poets exist and continue to challenge the assumptions and axioms of philosophy, especially in times in which nearly the whole field of thought has fallen prey to irrelevant scholastic disputes.”

~ Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei

Poetry Vocare

Poetry Vocare is the first collection of poetry published by young American poet A. Staley Groves. A dense fabric of resemblances and reflections, this work engages with Wallace Stevens, Ossip Mandelstam, and Emily Dickinson. In addition to poems Groves gives a supplement of prose, a short essay titled “Affirmation of Instruction.” Poetry scholar Judith Balso wrote a foreword in French to the work.
