Reviews

"Dome is Tate at his restless, relentless best - leaving many questions unanswered, and no answer unquestioned."--Boston Globe
"The rare American poet who managed to make poems that were at once fanciful and grave, mundane and transcendent. . . . His work is singular in American poetry for marrying goofball humor and childish jouissance to a lyricism that never seems cheap or self-serious-an unusual achievement."--New York Times Book Review
