"...[brings] long overdue attention to one of the most significant poets of the twentieth century."--SF Weekly
"[Lamantia] garnered big respect and much admiration from his contemporaries on the West Coast. For he was a West Coast
denizen in the main. The impression gained is that he was a 'poet's poet.' . . . It is to be hoped that [this substantial collection] will spread his name and work to many."--Beat Scene
"Taken together, the poems are an illumination in their own right"--Choice
"This must be the year of collected poems by neglected masters. . . .we're overjoyed to see Lamantia's collected."--Poetry Foundation
"A touchstone and stage upon which you can chart, as you desire, and as your desire finds, in Lamantia's words, "desire's desire," the arc of a life given to the sirens."--Pacific Rim Review of Books
