"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"
