    I got this signed at his CGU reading in October 09. It was a great event. He does most of his poems from memory. Overall, a very impressive man, and a wonderful book. ...

    I believe I've reviewed Dana Gioia on here before, so I'd like to avoid the gushing of affection I feel for this poet--except that I can't. Gioia is everything I love about poetry--meaningful statements artfully delivered. I understand that sometimes questioning meaning itself can be r...

    Really nice poetry. I like the three-stanza, unrhymzed, iambic pentameter thing he's got going on, especially in the longer, narrative poems. That's where he really shines, I think. He's got a very calm, almost unpoetic voice - it's not trying to be beautiful poetry, it's just sort of ...

    Bought for the catchy name: some of the poems were darker than I anticipated and left me unsettled. ...

    Was introduced to his poetry through Lauridsen's choral setting of Prayer, which is absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking. Several poems in this collection deserve repeated readings; especially enjoyed Night Watch, Rough Country, Cleared Away, and the ice cold Homecoming. ...

    It would be unfair to Dana Gioa - and to my obscure and slightly crumpled self - to term this a real review. I read "The Gods of Winter" several times, many years ago now. It is on my rereading list, and I have no qualms about recommending it. Mr Gioia, as I recall, makes as good a cas...

    The poems around losing a child and the growth of a murderer were especially effective. ...

    I actually prefer this collection of poems overall to those of Interrogations at Noon, Gioia's more recent work. Perhaps because these ones are more raw. I like storms and angry weather. ...
