Review quote

Villa seems to me to possess one of the purest and most natural gifts discoverable anywhere in contemporary poetry. Mark Van Doren [Villa is] a poet with a great, even an astounding, and perfectly original gift. . . . The best of his poems are among the most beautiful written in our time. Edith Sitwell
