    " Great collection of Wright. This collection (a mix of poems from earlier published Wright) was great. A good reader for a first time Wright reader or an old lover. "

    " Could this be my favorite poet? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Auntjenny | 7/16/2009

    " How can you not love Wright's poetry? He gives us everything a poem should be-- he says what most of us cannot express in words-- and he's hopeful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 6/3/2009

    " James Wright is one of my favorite poets. His poems are both spare and haunting. He is a master at conveying worlds of feeling in a few lines as in his poems "The Jewel" and "A Blessing". His work is accessible and allows for a real communication with the reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason M. | 1/31/2009

    " The last half really gets my juices flowing, but the first half is too formal for my tastes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aviya | 7/3/2008

    " I am devouring these poems. The love poems are especially beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 5/12/2008

    " The James Wright Poetry Festival in Martin's Ferry, Ohio is where I first fell in love with my wife.
    His voice winds those hills like the river. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassa | 4/7/2008

    " Read this for class; didn't find it particularly inspiring or exciting. His translations, however, make me want to read the originals, or translations of the originals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 3/9/2008

    " I keep coming back to this and it is richer every time. Boldly I say, I think Wright may be the greatest poet of the 20th century. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/20/2008

    " I am the reporter of one wright. Paul said oh oh the prose poems! and I said yawn yawn yawn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 S. | 12/6/2007

    " This is beautiful poetry but Farrar, Strauss and Giroux went real low-budgie on the book. Some smarter publisher should put together a better printing, better paper, clearer font, etc. What a bummer. "
