Reviews


"There are few poets here or abroad who have inspired book-length collections of tribute poems. "Nobody, it appears, / either under his real name or his alias, / missed him enough to report," Klein says in his signature poem Portrait of the Poem as Landscape, published in 1948. The editors have thankfully dispelled this sentiment, at least for Klein himself." —Peter O'Brien, Montreal Gazette
