Dr. Robert Deluty Publishes his 58th Book

Dr. Robert Deluty, associate dean emeritus of the Graduate School, has published his 58th book, “To Arrest Motion.” In his review, Dr. Robert Epstein writes,
“With 58 poetry books to his name, I suspect Robert Deluty long ago clinched the Guinness World Record for penning the most senryu in modern times.  He is no doubt a master of the art in no small part because of the astute attention he brings to our many human foibles through the deft use of satire, irony, bon mots, puns and the occasional wisecrack.  If you are not arrested by his uncanny wit, you will still need to hold onto your belly for a feast of laughs, as Deluty is a closet stand-up comedian with serious star power.”

“To Arrest Motion,” as well as all of Dr. Deluty’s other books, are on sale at the campus bookstore.
