Mary Maxwell has published five volumes of poems: An Imaginary Hellas, Emporia, Cultural Tourism, Nine Over Sixes and Oral Lake. She is the author of an art monograph, Serena Rothstein: Discourse in Paint, as well as the omnibus collection, The Longnook Overlook. She also recently completed a volume of nonfiction about the genesis and meaning of the movie, The Night of the Hunter, whose origins can be traced back to her childhood hometown of Clarksburg, West Virginia.

Her third book of poetry, Daylight Scoured, and a fourth chapbook, Detail, will be published later this year. New poems appear or are forthcoming in Denver Quarterly, Hotel Amerika, and Shenandoah.
