Gwiazda's argument aims to revitalize the role of poetry and its social value within an era of global politics. He is the author of James Merrill and W. Auden and has also published two books of poetry, Gagarin Street and Messages Table of Contents Introduction: Civic Poetry, 1.
Poetry and the Age of Empire, he has taken a period often seen as the triumph of 'language centered' poetics, and redefined it as the age of civic poetry. Tackling a range of poets from across the stylistic spectrum, he shows us the many roles poets play - as witnesses, judges, definers of national identity, seekers of moral community - when they reclaim poetry's place in the sphere of the public intellectuals.
And when Gwiazda takes issue with my own writing I tend to agree with him. One comes away from US Poetry in the Age of Empire, with a renewed appreciation for poetry's ability to speak 'with' others and to articulate the hopes and frustrations of American citizens troubled by the path their country has taken in the decades since the Vietnam War. Gwiazda argues for the continued relevancy of American poetry to political discourse, even if that relevance or influence is not direct or the consequence of a large readership.

Gwiazda's work is theoretically well-grounded in the political philosophy of Michael Hardt, wide-ranging and open in its considerations of competing poetic claims, and well-informed about the current situation of poetry.
