Reviews

When I read his poetry I know that I am in the presence of a man who honors language. His images give the reader a new experience of the world.--Julius Lester
Hayden was a remembrancer, a poet of faith and superb execution, and one of the best teachers by example one can find in the poetry of the twentieth century, or in any age. His words enhance and engage us as awakened selves, a nation in process, an abiding transcendent world voice.--Michael S. Harper
This luminescent volume reaffirms the beauty and power of his poetry... An enlightening and exciting reclamation of an essential American poet of suffering and radiance.
