Reviews

Williams manages to consistently maintain the gentle, witty, and honest voice that he has spent a lifetime crafting. "Rachel A. Burns, The Harvard Crimson"

In his first new collection since his monumental "Collected Poems," Pulitzer-winner and septuagenarian Williams delivers his best book in a decade, and one of his best outright. Like W.S. Merwin's late-career masterpiece "The Shadow of Sirius," this is the kind of book that only a lifetime--of experience and writing--can yield. "Publishers Weekly, starred review"

[Williams] has soul: a perfect ear for the just right ending coupled with an exquisite eye for images that resonate. This book belongs on all poetry lovers' shelves. "Diane Scharper, Library Journal"

Williams' poems enter the brain with such force and velocity, you don't so much read as ride them. But for all their propulsion, every element stays in sharp focus: mindscapes of fractal intricacy. "Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)""
