Exempt of the narcissistic emptiness built into other forms of contemporary culture, Dean J. Baker's works show a highly disciplined, passionate and informed uniqueness.
He brings to his craft a very widely read mind, fully intimate with all the great literature of the past along with a similar awareness of today's writers.

Through his exceptional and distinctive poems and prose poems will engage you in an ongoing relationship which you will find irreplaceable, and delightful in its intimate and enrichening influence.

His poetry allows for re-reading and renewed understanding through the work and its in-depth nuances in the only standing form of active privacy extant.

His blog is here:

"Dean is a combination of thought and torment that has made him write more than a baker's dozen of fine poems.. he might produce a collection that could astound us all." - Irving Layton, ("Irving Layton...Canada's greatest poet"-Leonard Cohen), nominated twice for the Nobel Prize for Literature; teacher, friend and mentor to Leonard Cohen, and the man to whom Leonard dedicated his latest book.
