Review quote

"He writes in many shapes, moods, even styles. Yet everywhere one recognizes this reverence for the power of language, words in their full-flight of syntax, what we--or our ancestors--used to call eloquence."-- Hayden Carruth, "Harper's""His second book, Praise, has an architectural grandeur that even his nearly flawless first -volume, Field Guide, did not aim at. Poem after poem sets limits for itself as stern as gravity: white on white, block on block of stone, frames around pictures."-- Peter Davison, "The Atlantic Monthly"
