Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Goodbye, plain style. Here is a poet of high style, who writes with the passion of Henry Vaughan and the wit of Lord Byron, the sheer virtuosity of James Merrill and Anthony Hecht and a lexicon to make W. H. Auden look up from his daily crosswords in Paradise. The range of tone and subject is breathtaking.

Mark Jarman — author of Bone Fires: New and Selected Poems
 

These are poems of faith, but not easy or naïve faith. Theirs is a faith that must include the warning, “Your convictions / May not survive.” Stephen Kampa’s poems edify; may his prayers be answered.
