Editorial Reviews


"In my opinion, Phoenix Poets - which includes David Ferry, Turner Cassity, Donald Davie, Tom Sleigh, Alan Shapiro and the like - is second to none." - Richard Wilbur "The 'other people' of the title of this extraordinary book are fully alive in the life of its language; and so is the poet observing them, and observing himself, as one of them. The book is a sympathetic and unsentimental instrument of truth." - David Ferry"

More About the Author

I was born in Boston in 1976. For as long as I can remember I've wanted to make art of some kind. My first poems were private scribblings, tracings from the Oxford Anthology that my parents (by some odd stroke of luck) had on their bookshelf, and mangled pre-adolescent cris de coeur. I was lucky to have good teachers in High School and college. Now, I myself enjoy teaching very much.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Burl Horniachek on November 21, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A bit of a disclaimer in that I know Campion a bit.

Otherwise this is an excellent collection. Campion is a very subtle, very controlled poet who works in a quiet register. The best poem in the collection is Pedal Tones, where a musician teaches the poet how to "make room inside the form." But there are many more. The book is remarkably consistent.
