Radioactive City is the latest book of poetry by the prominent contemporary American poet, Richard Robbins. The distinguished poet Linda Gregerson, selected Radioactive City as the winner of the 2009 Bellday Poetry Prize. About the winning entry, Professor Gregerson said, It is conceptual freshness, and a beautiful instinct for emergent shape, that makes this poetry radioactive. Robbins can spin a hitherto undiscovered cosmos out of a single, wayward proposition, but he never loses footing in the radiant, mortal, given world. Richest invention is tempered by submission to the textures of material and social and ethical life. Vision and insight both, in other words: what more can one ask of a book of poems?
