Anthony DiMatteo’s poems, essays, and reviews have been spotted roaming the pages of The Cortland Review, College Literature, Renaissance Quarterly, Smartish Pace, Tar River Poetry, and Verse Daily. His recent book In Defense of Puppets has been hailed as, “a rare collection, establishing a stunningly new poetic and challenging the traditions that DiMatteo (as Renaissance scholar) claims give the poet ‘the last word’ (Cider Press Review). He is also the author of Beautiful Problems: Poems as well as a chapbook Greetings from Elysium. A former group home supervisor for a decade, he now defends the mysteries of writing, literature, and art at the New York Institute of Technology where he is a full professor of English. He happily lives with his wife, the designer and classical pianist Kathleen O’Sullivan, their sixteen-year-old son Michael, a dog, and a lion-headed rabbit.
