--The St. Petersburg Times "Meinke is a skilled craftsman. He is especially adept at building to a strong ending or the ending that shies the poem into an unexpected, but perfect place. He also has the most endearing sense of humopr, the ability to laugh at himself."
--Judith Hemschmeyer "Peter Meinke was a master of traditional poetic forms long before the current interest in 'the new formalism.' His work is, in turn, witty, comic, sane, deeply moving, and always readable."
--Poetry Pilot "Like Whitman, who claimed that the smallest sprout of grass 'Shows there is really no death, ' Meinke is at heart a celebrator of a vital and joyous existence."
--The Nashville Tennessean "The threats beneath attractive surfaces and the uncertain security of the outwardly contented are topics rarely treated in poems as healthy as Meinke's; his voice is knowledgeable and reassuring."
