    In The Looking House, Fred Marchant's fourth collection of poetry, the poet lays out a map of human suffering, from wars within the psyche to wars that rage across the contemporary landscape. He is the author of three previous poetry collections, including Tipping Point, winner of the 1993 Washington Prize in poetry. His second collection, Full Moon Boat, was published by Graywolf Press in 2000, and in 2002 Dedalus Press of Dublin, Ireland published House on Water, House in Air: New and Selected Poems. He has co-translated (with Nguyen Ba Chung) From a Corner of My Yard, a collection of poems by the contemporary Vietnamese poet Tran Dang Khoa. The Looking House, the next collection of Marchant's own poems, will be published in June 2009. He directs the Poetry Center and the Creative Writing Program at Suffolk University in Boston, where he is a professor in the English Department. During the Vietnam War, he was one of the first Marine officers to be honorably discharged as a conscientious objector.
