Review:

"A painless journey through the foothills of poetry . . . One of the marvelous things about this book is Pinsky's deep recognition that a poem is successful not because of the poet's ambition or sense of purpose but because of the effect it creates in the reader, and in many readers over time"--Graham Christian, "Boston Phoenix"
"A keenly idiosyncratic account of the place of poetry in our time . . . not only interesting but suspenseful to read." -- James Longenbach, "The Nation" "One of the marvelous things about this book is Pinsky's deep recognition that a poem is successful not because of the poet's ambition or sense of purpose but because of the effect it creates in the reader, and in many readers over time"--Graham Christian, "Boston Phoenix"
