What People are Saying About This

Timothy Steele

"Philosophically engaged rather than philosophically detached, Adam Kirsch brings a singular and welcome seriousness to contemporary verse. In his new collection, he trains a shrewd eye on the violence and vulgarity of our age, but also celebrates, intelligently and convincingly, the larger and enduring realities of art, science, peace, and faith. These excellent poems are triumphs of craft and hope."

Jacqueline Osherow

"In these unusually thoughtful, elegant poems, Adam Kirsch has consistently achieved the same end as the 'hypothetical' light of the collection's sole sonnet: he has 'made our dark matter visible.'"
