Reviews

PRAISE FOR FAILURE "Philip Schultz's language reminds me of such modern masters as Isaac Rosenberg and Hart Crane. It's one thing I've always admired in his poetry; that and a heartbreaking tenderness that goes beyond mere pity and that is so present in Failure. It's as if he bears our pain."--Gerald Stern, winner of the National Book Award

"Philip Schultz's poems have long since earned their own place in American poetry. His stylistic trademarks are his great emotional directness and his intelligent haranguing--of god, the reader, and himself. He is one of the least affected of American poets, and one of the fiercest."--Tony Hoagland
