I like Winter's conversational drive, his variety of subject matter, and his assertive but wacky voice ... Jonah Winter is unafraid to have a good time in his poems, and that is fortunate, because a sometimes overlooked law of poetic composition is that the more fun the writer has, the more fun the reader will have. In a sense [his poems] test the limits of silliness; on a deeper level they explode the notion that writing in a strict verse form acts as an inhibition or signifies a conservative bent of mind. - David Lehman, from his introduction
