Editorial Reviews


"...filled with the energy of urgent composition...with genuine humor, and with formal confidence." -- Keith Taylor, Arborweb.com

"Few first books show as much pleasure in words as Matthew Thorburn's Subject to Change." -- Stephen Burt,

Exuberant and crystalline, these poems articulate the problematic beauty of our grand mix-up, our new and comic Dark Ages. -- Angela Ball

Format: Paperback
This is quite possibly the best collection of poems I've ever read. It is far more diverse than the Norton Anthology, and much more portable. This should be recommended reading in classrooms all over the world.
