Reviews

Rimbaud's epoch-making poems come through in all their bizarre originality, their brusque, unsettling freshness.--John Timpane
Meticulously faithful yet nimbly inventive...We are fortunate that John Ashbery has...brought to it such care and imaginative resourcefulness.--Lydia Davis
This is a landscape not only of the imagination, but of an imagination that is still affecting us profoundly.--Charles Rosen
