"One might have to go back to Pope’s famous glass-encrusted grotto at Twickenham to find an environment so meticulously crafted to embody a poet’s sensibility." Roger Gilbert on John Ashbery • Rain Taxi
"Mick Imlah is masterly at shifting in and out of colloquial and more elevated tones and styles, an accomplishment characteristic of contemporary poetry at its best." Douglas Dunn • TLS
"Juan Felipe Herrera’s worst poems seem disorganized, excessive, frantic; his best seem disheveled, excited, uncommonly free." Stephen Burt • The New York Times
"When a poet bets the colossus on personae, writing poems as much to merchandise a character as to say something wonderful and memorable, the writer becomes a monster." Jordan Davis on David Lawrence • Constant Critic
