Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In this era of obscure, hard-edged poetry, Dennis's sixth collection, set in rural western New York state, is a gift of genial, accessible language. With "tasteful plainness," these 35 poems give voice to the conflict between neighborhood actualities and philosophical "meetings with time" between what's permanent, if ordinary, and "too many changes in climate at the final moment." Weighing "A stop at the old house, an exchange of stories/Under the lilacs, beside the rusty flagpole" and journeys into "endless bliss or torment," this 20th-century Horace--a cosmopolitan seeking refuge in a familiar pastoral landscape--contemplates "the unpredictable music still to come" in poems that at times have the serene quietness of Edward Hicks's "The Peaceable Kingdom."--Frank Allen, West Virginia State Coll., Institute
