What People Are Saying

Charles Altieri
"It is difficult not to think about Robert Creeley when reading Liu's sparse and unreletingly lucid lines. Even Liu's insistenly enthmatic logic echoes Creeley, albeit with an indulgence approaching but not embracing surrealism. But there are emotional timbres that even a gay Robert Creeley might not risk.... Liu's lucidity is ludic, or almost ludic because of his sense of the freedom evoked by his insistent refusal of lyric expansiveess. The negatives born of Liu's lucidity become strange sources of plenitude."
