Reviews

"An astonishing performance . . . As near to [a masterpiece] as anything that American poetry has produced in the last two or three decades." --The New York Review of Books

"James Merrill has created a poem as central to our generation as The Waste Land was to the one before." --The New Leader

"In turns comic, elegiac, and darkly prophetic, Sandover is as ambitious in scope as it is audacious in concept . . . combining an epic intent with dramatic and lyric meanings and means. The result may be the greatest long poem an American has yet produced." --Newsweek
