Reviews

Praise for Yusef Komunyakaa

"Yusef Komunyakaa is one of our period's most significant and individual voices . . . He has a near-revelatory capacity to give himself over to his subject matter and to the taut concision of his free verse . . . Dazzling." --David Wojahn, Poetry on Yusef Komunyakaa

"Probably my favorite living poet. No one else taught me more about how important it was to think about how words make people feel. It's not enough for people to know something is true. They have to feel it's true." --Ta-Nehisi Coates, The New York Times Style Magazine


Praise for Emperor of Water Clocks

"The Emperor of Water Clocks is very much a movement from reverie to reverie, and an impressive work of lyric wisdom as well."--Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly
