    Orr is not afraid to dwell in sincerity and sentiment, to break his lines so that a single word isolated from its neighbors sits alone and ponderous, to get down in the muck with the big abstractions other poets shun. And this can be great. I didn't mind nodding along as Orr enthused a...

    Vindicating the Seventies period style, Orr's dimeter pursues idiomatic speed and gem-like slowness. It's a trope for the transcendent obsolescence of the damned, whose inspirational verse comes from an "Ode to Nothing": "Nothing stands between | The abyss and you. | Nothing keeps you ...

    Gregory Orr remains a lyric poet of measured syntax and the deepest rooted imagery (as the poet Stanley Kunitz once wrote about Orr). There is clarity and precision in the use of words in his poems. Words are not wasted. Care is taken. They tell. I think this is Orr?s strongest wo...

    Enjoyed this book very much. In several poems Gregory Orr uses unexpected turns of phrases that were brilliant and delightful. He also included at least three villanelles. I LOVE villanelles. Out of 113 or so pages of actual poetry there were only a handful that made me think: meh. I...
