What People are Saying About This

Ruth Stone
Algebra of the Night! I just love this book. It is a dazzling cross-section of his passionate wisdom and wit. With Borgesian scope and cunning, in free verse or invisible sonnets, Barnstone floats us to resonant surprise. Out of an extraordinary life and the richness of many languages, literatures and travels ranging over the world, this gorgeous energy of a poet of genius. I don't believe he sleeps!
Carolyn Kizer
Willis Barnstone has a problem: he's too good. Everything he writes… is a breathtaking achievement.
