Lovers and Other Still Creatures seduces the reader as it surprises . . . Codish’s natural facility for choosing the exact right detail reveals what it’s like to be a person in domestic, romantic, and platonic love. Though the settings in the poems may be familiar, his ability to turn phrases into diverging meanings makes the settings unfamiliar. Reading this book is pure pleasure, and that’s what poetry is for.”

—Sean Singer, author of Discography

Lovers and Other Still Creatures is Whitmanesque, the poet embodying vast experience from conferences in Hartford to dawn in Palestine. But here, Eitan Codish is gentler: holding daily moments of wonder and loss like “an infant, gently rubbing away its stains.” Of a wounded world and heart, Codish writes, “And what / can you do but love?”

—Emily Jaeger, author of The Evolution of Parasites
