"I've been an admirer of Craig Beaven's poetry for years; for its deep focus as well as its immaculate craft. In NATURAL HISTORY the poet's domestic life—impending parenthood and marriage—is often in the foreground, but in the background of these poems is a deep, unsettling sense of history and time itself that haunts. NATURAL HISTORY is a deeply American, wonderfully accessible collection of poems, in voice, but it carries as well a freight of uncommon depths and shadows."—Tony Hoagland
