What People Are Saying

Peter Stitt
“Philip Levine certainly must be ranked with the finest poets America has produced. He also belongs with those who are most thoroughly American, writing in the great tradition of William Carlos Williams—eschewing opera in favor of jazz, the drawing room in favor of the kitchen, the silk-covered cushion in favor of the bus-station bench. His Selected Poems is a monument for our age.”
Dave Smith
“. . . Mr. Levine’s poems always begin and remain grounded in a single, highly receptive consciousness which is a man’s alone. The language, the figures of speech, the narrative progressions of this consciousness are never so private, so obscure, so truncated as to forbid less sophisticated readers. Though he takes on the largest subjects of death, love, courage, manhood, loyalty, etc., he brings the mysteries of existence down into the ordinarily inarticulate events and objects of daily life. His speaker and subject is the abused and disabused spirit of the common yet singular self. He risks the maudlin, the sentimental, the banal, and worse because he cannot live in the world fully enough; because the world is so much with us all we must sing or die of its inexpressible presence.”
