Overview

"Michael Shorb's poems stand as testimony to all that is noble and lasting in the human spirit. He ranges far and wide over human consciousness, taking his time in lyrical gems that balance intellect and intuition. One feels the humanity in these poems-they resonate with our literary fathers while looking, and looming, far into the future." -Neeli Cherkovski

"Cosmic muckraker, whimsical shaman, passionate surreal fabulist, Michael Shorb, walking the backs of whales, trekking ruined rain forests like a new Walt Whitman, herein has charted the maps and kept a keen-eyed, lyrical catalogue of the tragedy of our age....A beautiful, absolutely necessary book..." -Steven Schutzman

"Michael Shorb's lyrical voice, fierce and frolicking, gets inside you and lives." -Anne Valley-Fox

"Michael Shorb's whimsical voice is so steadfast, so authentic, never flinching in the face of all the desecrating activity around us, it lifts us with a delight that redeems our humanity. It certainly lives up to Pound's guiding motto concerning Literachoor: ut doceat, ut moveat, ut delectet: 'Let it teach, move and delight.' He left behind a light for us all." -Eugene Berson
