Reviews

Harvard Review"
Revell is a writer of singular talent and ambition . . . he takes the reader to unfamiliar and strange places and, in the process, he creates some of the most beautiful poetry in our language. Harvard Review"
...This book is an experiment in...the pleasures of the close reading of a text, an art largely lost or ignored. Taking Dante and Beatrice as his subjects, the poet chooses New York around 1968 as his setting, and an antiwar movement as his broad theme. The result is a lovely and lively reflection on war and peace, God and children, and how each human life is worthy of pageant or celebration. VERDICT Revell's thoughtful and insightful work pays homage to the poets who came before him while remaining contemporary. Library Journal"
With beguiling sumptuousness and sincerity, Revell argues that Art is progressing infinitesimally toward Paradise. Kelsey Burritt, First Things"
