Reviews
Striking . . . chilling. . . . [Rozewicz's work] embodies that particular anxiety and familiar sense of diminishment we still associate with being 'modern.'
Instead of answers, the poet offers only an examination. Like it or not, he says, this is all we have: a fragment, a glimpse, a rustle.
Rozewicz is that rare character--a skeptic as full of passion as of intelligence, of warmth as wariness.--judges' citation, Griffin Poetry Prize
