What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Among American poets of religious belief at the present time, none is more skillful, authentic, or convincing than Scott Cairns.  Far from the old stereotype of such poets as naive and otherworldly, Cairns in every poem reveals his attachment to "the ten thousand things" and to their participation in the mysteries of ultimate Being. He is steadily making himself and his work indispensable to the richness and breadth of contemporary poetry, an ascent confirmed both beautifully and movingly in Idiot Psalms."  –B.H. Fairchild
