Editorial Reviews

Review

“The poems are as alive on the page as if they were being spoken to us directly as we read.”
--Publishers Weekly


“There are few contemporary poets who can do what Larry Levis does. . . .There are few others who can combine so artfully the skills of the novelist and those of the poet. Levis’s gift in this, perhaps his finest work, reveals itself in that attention to detail that is the novelist’s creed, and the compulsion to say what must be said, even if one has stipped believing, that marks the poet’s calling. . . .There are wonderfully fresh moments that blossom within poems. . . .In his best poems Levis touches something dreamlike, the horror and beauty that can exist within the commonplace. . . .Levis’ poems have that sharp clarity, that pein, that haunting resonance.”
--Kliat Paperback Book Guide


“A sprawling psalmic line carries these poems forward as they show off that new interest in discursive meditation which has surfaced in the ‘80s. Levis’s ability to cast his poems out from the self and then reel them in is impressive indeed.”

—The North American Review
