"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Robert Knox‘s well-tended garden of verses furnishes readers with elegant borders, unexpected vistas, gorgeous blossoms, and insights sharp as thorns. His themes are as local as the backyard and as universal as weather. The poet is tuned into the present, like the journalist he also is; he is as deeply read as a scholar, and the verses he produces simply aren’t biodegradable. Some are annuals, commentaries on the immediate; others are perennials, novel explorations of transcendent themes. No matter his subject, Robert Knox‘s writing is never less than rewarding. His work is that of a gifted and generous writer sensitive to all the personal and public events enacted before nature’s scrim of seasons, to all that lives and grows and dies.
—Robert Wexelblatt, poet, scholar, author of the story collection
Heiberg’s Twitch and other books
Robert Knox is a brilliant writer whose bountiful work I am privileged to publish. His new collection of poetry, Gardeners Do It With Their Hands Dirty, blossoms with wonder, wisdom, and wit. I highly recommend it.
—Firestone Feinberg, editor of Verse-Virtual
