Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for David Biespiel: "Biespiel is a true poetic innovator." - The Portland Mercury "Biespiel has a gift for transformation ... he can make a command sound like an incantation. He can create psalm-like beauty from the repetition of a simple phrase ... one must note the instances of raw brilliance." - Chelsea "[Biespiel] writes with a belief in the redemptive powers of poetry." - Choice "Biespiel's debut collection is sustained by a search for transcendent, intuitive truths." --- Publisher's Weekly

In his book about regret, longing, and loss, Biespiel explores the intricacies of relationships between men and women in settings both real and imaginary. ---The Poetry Foundation
