"Simplicity is the highest form of sophistication,” Da Vinci said, and Jordan Zandi was listening. Rather than overpower the reader with flashy intelligence or dazzle via the latest fashion, this poet offers startling discoveries of expression. With straightforward syntax and diction Zandi’s poems find their way to fresh sound and unexplored regions of the interior.
Jordan Zandi grew up in the rural Midwest, and in 2011 graduated with an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he was the recipient of a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship to Bolivia. His poetry has appeared in The New Republic and Little Star.
