“The poems in Last City by Brian Sneeden accomplish that rarest―and most vital―feat in poetry: they are spells, conjurings, wards. The earth and the stars, the past and the present, life and death―they are all made new, or strange, or singing, here.” (Paul Guest)
“A brilliant and original voice. Sneeden’s poetry reaches back through the Greek masters of the last century to their Classical predecessors, and in this journey finds a voice that is agile and entirely spontaneous. He speaks to the twenty-first century loneliness that comes from being connected to everyone and everything past and present, and to our fantasies of a future that will deliver us from this loneliness and perhaps from ourselves too.” (Peter Constantine)
