Reviews

Something has to be true enough to be Taken for granted. In the hospital I saw An old man Caressing the face of an old woman. This same man, young, caressed her face In just that way. That's the stillness At the center of change-- A sadness worth dying for, I swear-- There is no other.
"James Galvin has a voice and a world, perhaps the two most difficult things to achieve in poetry."
"In James Galvin we have a superior poet."
"Galvin's poems have the virtues of precise observation and original language, yes, but what he also brings to the table is a rigor of mind and firmness of phrasing which make the slightest of his poems an architectural pleasure."
