Praise

“Exhilarating. . . . It’s hard to be temperate about Michael Schmidt’s loving, informed and deeply engaging survey. . . . It would be difficult to imagine a better introduction to its subject.”
–The Washington Post

“Exhilarating . . . a learned feast. . . . Schmidt knows and loves poetry and has a marvelous feel for it.” –Newsday
