Editorial Reviews


His poems are among the best in the English language this century. (Hugh Kenner)

Tomlinson's perfected style has been little imitated, but I predict it will come to be seen as one of the major achievements of late twentieth-century English verse. (Times Literary Supplement)

Tomlinson's poetry gives a refreshing rustle or seething to the words which bespeak the entrance of a new life. (William Carlos Williams)

A patient looker at landscape. (Willard Spiegelman)

A master of the craft, his poems have the finality of form which you find only among the first-rate. (Donald Hall)

He is fascinated—with his eyes open: a lucid fascination—at the universal busyness, the continuous generation and degeneration of things. (Octavio Paz)

Tomlinson, 76, is a painter as well as a poet, and his artist's eye serves him well in his poetry.... This book in fact records a well-planned poetic itinerary. (Frank Wilson Philadelphia Inquirer)

Reading Charles Tomlinson makes one acutely aware that there's a whole world outside—and inside too—just waiting to be noticed, and that the more we notice, the more we are enriched. (Chicago Tribune)

A standout. (New York Sun)

Mr. Tomlinson is an eloquent poet of place...whose work combines visual exactitude with an uncommon gracefulness of expression. (The Economist)

From the Publisher

Winner of the third annual New Criterion Poetry Prize, Skywriting and Other Poems is a triumphant book.
