Bombing the Thinker is the eighth book of poetry by the well-known and award winning Darren C. Demaree. It is a rumination on middle America as told through the thought of the sculpture The Thinker, originally named The Poet, by Auguste Rodin. The Thinker Demaree is speaking from is one of the 27 Rodin supervised casts that sits outside of the Museum of Modern Art in Cleveland, Ohio. He documents all that he has seen and experienced around him, such as war, protest, anguish, love and ordinary life. It is a book that archives time as seen through a fixed art form, as well as a man.
Darren C. Demaree is living in Columbus, Ohio with his wife and children. He is the author of seven poetry collections. He is the winner of the Louise Bogan Award from Trio House Press and the Nancy Dew Taylor Award from Emrys Journal. He is the recipient of ten Pushcart Prize nominations.
