Reviews
" The great thing about Rod Smith' s work is that it is all risk all the time. In "Deed," he has built a substantial architecture whose ' perilous upkeep' is dazzling. This is a truly wondrous book." -- Peter Gizzi
" A master poet among us? I' d vote for Rod Smith. With the sweeping vision of Whitman, the noun-play of Gertrude Stein, and the slant political commentary of the New York School, Smith chisels out a place of his own with a tremendous integrity of vision. "Deed "contains the best of what American poetry has to offer: a place to pause and reflect upon the beauty of language and love flowering up through the mayhem of the world." -- Lisa Jarnot, author, "Black Dog Songs"
