Editorial Reviews


"Rhode Island Notebook is a modern/postmodern epic as a poem-including-everything. An incredibly human(e) book at bottom, it is also Gudding's road of excess, as Blake once had it, leading him (and us) to the palace of wisdom." --Jerome Rothenberg

"This is a remarkably vulnerable book, a dapple-drawn vortex sutra, a contemporary odyssey, an anti-Baudrillardic-bardic remapping of America. It is a meditation on loss and fecundity, an amazing read, a necessary read, by an amazing poet. . . . This is the first 21st-century classic." --Alan Sondheim

"In a crowded field, Gudding's work demands attention." --Boston Review

About the Author

Gudding is an assistant professor of English at Illinois State University.

Format: Paperback
A work full of surprises. I can't recommend highly enough this particular road trip, which I'm reading now for the second time. Gudding does what a great poet should: he maps the edges of the speakable.
