Poet Michael Earl Craig grew up in Dayton, Ohio, and was educated at Ohio Wesleyan University, the University of Montana, and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Craig lives near Livingston, Montana, where he works as a farrier. Influenced by artists as diverse as Werner Herzog, Julio Cortázar, Lou Reed, and James Tate, Craig’s poems question the assumptions and habits of daily life, using humor and frequent glimpses of a torqued pastoral landscape.
