Reviews

"Wonder and Wrath represents the culmination and integration of A. M. Juster's diverse and remarkable career. In nine previous volumes of poetry and verse translation, Juster displayed mastery of so many modes and manners that it was sometimes difficult to bring his artistic personality into focus. In Wonder and Wrath, the variety remains, but the superb new poems are compellingly unified. Juster's late style is capacious--nothing human is alien to him. He is simultaneously tender and savage, witty and sad, vulgar and learned. In this go-for-broke volume, Juster also writes in over two dozen forms from sonnet to pantoum, haiku to heroic couplet, all splendidly handled. Page after page, the poems strike home."--Dana Gioia
