Editorial Reviews

Review

“A primary joy in Robert Pack’s Laughter Before Sleep is the breath and space into which he floats his ideas. . . . There is a seamless action and reaction as the poet not only presents the changes in nature but reveals the changes in himself.”

(Rain Taxi)

Laughter Before Sleep is suffused with a tension between nature’s givens and the poet’s gift, resulting in lyrics of poignancy and resignation touched off, in the end, by Pack’s wit and will to affirmation.”
(Middlebury Magazine)
