No poet is in touch at so many points with so much of the world around him; no poet has written so comprehensively of domestic life; and no poet has undertaken so sustained and original an effort to make political poetry possible in this century of poetic and political extremes.--Steven Helming
Aside from the fact that Zukofsky's short poems are intensely individual and their energy sings in a new way, they move in a circular path 'so that we may think in our time.' Indeed they seem to move in all directions at once -- each of the smallest and the most quiet a field of magnetic force.--Lorine Niedecker
