Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In Circus Maximus, David Starkey wanders through contemporary Rome to be arrested time and again by the intensities of vision and faith of its Catholic art. We have here ... moments of the extraordinary hidden within the hurly-burly of the ephemeral everyday. And this he renders with great charm, alertness and silken intelligence.”
—Irving Feldman

“In clean skillfully written stanzas, the poet shows us what he can do with language that is as precise as it is suggestive … David Starkey is our knowing, reliable, astute guide—not just to the enduring metropolis that is Rome—but to the eternal city of imagination and art."
—Kurt Brown

“Spiritual yet visceral, aware of the isolation inherent in being human, Starkey reminds us we must live without closure. Yet in this complex collection, ‘nothing ever really douses hope.’”
—Vivian Shipley

"Eloquent, evocative, richly detailed … a rewarding, memorable read."
—David O’Meara
