Dwight GarnerMr. Gilbert's career-embracing Collected Poems is…a revelation, almost certainly among the two or three most important books of poetry that will be published this year. His poetry is helped, not hurt, by this context and relative abundance. Around this book's margins a scruffy and blood-warm autobiography emerges…Reading Mr. Gilbert's finest poems is like shaving with a razor that just nicks your skin. There's a slight imperfection in the blade. There's a bit of blood in the sink.
