David Caplan is the author of the poetry collection, In the World He Created According To His Will, as well as three books of poetry criticism. The Jerusalem Post praises his poetry as the place “where beauty and wisdom merge,” calling Caplan “one of those poets a culture discards at its peril.” Caplan received Virginia Quarterly Review’s Emily Clark Balch Prize for “Observances,” a group of poems set at Yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim. Introducing the poems, Stephen Burt noted, “These remarkable poems blend spiritual unease with religious confidence, an investigator’s fascinated spirit with a sense that the poet has almost—but not quite— come home.” Caplan is the Benjamin T. Spencer Professor of Literature and the Associate Director of Creative Writing at Ohio Wesleyan University.Spiritual Poetry David Caplan
