Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Besides language that reflects a sense of wonder at the world, Filkins excels in the lyrical pace of his poems and in the variety of poetic forms that feature unobtrusive rhyme. Sound contributes its share to the sense of the poems. Sometimes expressing the weight of both object and idea in a breathtakingly quick poem such as "Snow Globe," Filkins also deftly maintains the lyrical music in his longer lines, slowing the pace but never losing the rhythm.

The poetry's rhythm also complements the quiet rendering of experience in its language. "Traveling in America" weaves the country's different accents and backgrounds into a flash of color, slowed only by a stranded driver's need for help. These are thoughtful poems that will leave you daydreaming.


The accomplished poems in Peter Filkins's first collection use form as a finely constructed strategy against chaos, a kind of cage for undomesticated thoughts. -- The New York Times Book Review, William Ferguson
