Editorial Reviews

Poetry Magazine
“Kees was both a gifted lyric poet and a restless experimenter, whose diverse background as an abstract expressionist painter, a jazz pianist and composer, and a filmmaker enriched his sense of formal possibilities.”—Poetry Magazine
Hudson Review
“The true impulse of [Kees’s] work shows in its constantly surprising inventiveness and in the certainty and naturalness of its speech.”—Hudson Review
The Village Voice
“Not many poets can do better than this; not many ever have. . . . This is poetry to read over and over again.”—The Village Voice
