In "Eclogue in Line to View The Clock by Christian Marclay," Brian Blanchfield writes, "The movie tells what time it is. / In poetry too we all face forward." This sense of looking deeply into the landscapes around us runs throughout Blanchfield's second book, A Several World, winner of the 2014 James Laughlin Award.

In this video, Blanchfield reads two poems as part of last year's Poets Forum celebration.
