Reviews

Graceful and elegiac.
Audacious, powerful and beautiful.
One of the best books of poetry I've read in years.
Luminous. . . . [Oswald] has made a poem that blooms out of slaughter.
Remembering on a grand scale . . . with a freshness to match Homer's own--as if each soldier had died on the day of writing.
