Praise

Praise for Billy Collins

“Using simple, understandable language, Collins captures ordinary life–its pleasure, its discontents, its moments of sadness and of joy.”
USA Today

“At once accessible and profound, [Collins’s] work makes him a natural people’s poet.”
–Boston Herald

“A poet of plenitude, irony, and Augustan grace.”
–The New Yorker

“A sort of poet not seen since Robert Frost.”
–The Boston Globe


“Collins reveals the unexpected within the ordinary. He peels back the surface of the humdrum to make the moment new.”
–The Christian Science Monitor

“It is difficult not to be charmed by Collins, and that in itself is a remarkable literary accomplishment.”
–The New York Review of Books
