More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Colette Inez
The poet chooses to make the sonnet form contemporary and succeeds in creating a powerful and distinctive music...Keats-like in the sensuous attention to language and its cadences, The Timbre of Sand adds to our consciousness of the world and nourishes us in the process. With his first book, Page makes an impressive debut that deserves an enthusiastic audience. -author of "Clemency" and "Naming the Moons"
Ernesto Sabato
He is able to take a mocrocosm and create a universe.... I find his ear for language the caliber of some of the finest poets. -author of On Heroes and Tombs and The Tunnel
Leonard G. Shurtleff
It is as good and as stylish as any I have read in Atlantic Monthly or the New Yorker. Steve will only continue to grow in his craft. He is a writer of unusual promise. -writer for The Economist
Shaadi Khoury
Page should be applauded. It is always of interest to see how today's poets approach strong measures, and the quantity of his one straight shot is impressive, not to mention quite good quality. It definitely makes for a very nice song. -The New York Spectacle

    Timbre Resonates

    Sharp imagery. Sensual. Melodic. Poems that leap off the page. S. M. Page brings language to life. He will be ranked among the greats.

    Outstanding

    Undoubtedly the best book of poems I have ever read. Multi-layered like a sweet onion, every time I partake of a poem, it reveals new meaning. Stephen Page is obviously brilliant as he is sensitive.
