Praise

"The dialectic between spirit embodied, perhaps entrapped, in matter, and matter burning and glowing with spirit has occupied the center of Rice’s writing since Some Lamb . . . His work reveals the magnitude of revelation and the depth of wisdom available to a single human consciousness engaged in transforming its life through making art."
–Andy Brumer, Poetry Flash

"Rice’s poems are a mixture of primitive and sophisticated, dark and light, Fauce-like outward energy and inward looking, self-referential themes . . . The radiance of life itself is what shines through in these often dissonant, anxious, yet bravely life-affirming poems."
–Susan Larson, Times-Picayune (New Orleans)

"This brash poet’s style reaches for the sky just when we least expect it, taking us briskly to new heights of feeling and expectation. This is what art issupposed to do."
–Peter Thorpe, Rocky Mountain News
