Editorial Reviews


“What a splendid lamination of paradoxes Margot Schilpp brings to The World’s Last Night. She means to include everything, to sacrifice neither temperament nor resolve, neither craft nor wildness. She is a poet of supreme lyrical delicacy, yet the bold line is her mainstay. Such fusion in a lesser poet might seem merely ambitious, but for Schilpp, it is a signature of character. She is one of the finest young poets writing today.” (Rodney Jones)
