Andrew Glaze’s previous book, Someone Will Go On Owing: Selected Poems, 1966-1992, won the inaugural SEBA Book of the Year Award for poetry in 1998. He brings us now a collection of new work that deserves attention and a wide audience. He is an unusual poet for these times, thoroughly modern yet rooted in the tradition of the American bard. Peter Schjeldahl in The New York Times called Glaze’s poetry “wonderful company. I would like to just quote and quote.” And critic William Doreski puzzles that perhaps Glaze’s work “demands such honesty from the reader that despite [50] years of publishing some of the most exciting poetry of our time, Glaze remains relatively unknown.” Publisher’s Weekly has said of him, “Balance, born of conciliated tension and contradiction, characterizes Glaze’s work . . . without conceit or embarrassment, he purposefully inhabits the role of poet as bard and minor prophet.”
