The Glacier's Daughter is the winner of the 1981 Juniper Prize, an annual poetry award sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Press. Arising from an enormous feeling for and an acute perception of nature, the poems in this collection are distinguished by unexpected imagery, unique arrangements of language, and the facility with which the natural and human worlds are described and transformed by daring new perceptions. Hopes's poems are imbued with the intensely felt religious experience that colors his writing, about both nature and other parts of his life. He sees his poetry, in part, as an attempt to "reverse Milton's activity and justify the ways of men to God."
A resident of Syracuse, the author has a B.A. in English from Hiram College, an M.A. in creative writing from Syracuse University, and a Ph.D. from Syracuse in English and American literature. Hopes teaches literature and writing at Syracuse University and has published in Poetry Northwest, Hiram Poetry Review, and Journal of Irish Literature.In addition to teaching and writing, David Brendan Hopes has recently been acting in the theater. He has been a parks naturalist, a professional singer, and, since open-heart surgery in 1976, a long-distance runner.
