Greg Hewett



My Works

Blindsight
"Hewett is a poet desperate to know- that 'knowledge' is never cheap and always comes at great cost is of no importance because, if anything, his poet mistrusts simple vision, he aims deeper, darker. The stakes are high for this poet and his gamble pays off stunningly."
-Kazim Ali

darkacre
A penetrating, richly metaphoric survey of the human landscape, Hewett excavates the fields where humanity has sowed the seeds of both redemption and ruin.

Greg Hewett’s three previous collections have received a Publishing Triangle Award, two Minnesota Book Award nominations, and an Indie Bound Poetry Top Ten recommendation.

The Eros Conspiracy
Beauty meets History and Love clashes with Revolution in this original, intimate, and intrigue-fueled treatise on politics, passion, and possession. A carnivalesque eroticism pervades as starry-eyed clichés are turned on their heads…in these transhistorical communiqués from lover to beloved.

Red Suburb
Red Suburb portrays the neurotic beauty of a generation squeezed between the Baby Boomers and Generation X. These poems—ripe with love and wistfulness—scope the bright, innocent Kodak colors of suburbia, then twist like a kaleidoscope, distorting into a very un-American Dream.
