Benjamin DeCasseres (is) the Pontius Pilate of America.

-H.L. Mencken

A passionate, erratic poet... strives to shake the foundation of the world.

-The Saturday Review of Literature

He occupies a niche that is all his own and asks space to stand for no other man .

-The Nation

DeCasseres is the most fiery and independent writer that I know of.

-Remy de Gourmont

There is but one Benjamin DeCasseres. And he is perhaps the one living wonder of the literary world. It is fortunate that such an one must be born, that he cannot be made; especially that he cannot be imitated, for if every one wrote like DeCasseres readers would go mad. That he can keep in any semblance of thought-order such whirls of words is something to marvel at. Yet to read him once, twice, is to experience the greatest mental exhilaration.

-New York Times
