Praise for Daryl Hine

"At certain moments, in reading him, one has the startled sense that language has arrived at a kind of impasse which only a quick scintillation of wit - in the form of a sly rhyme, a subtle pun or an extravagant rhetorical flourish - can grace, if not elude. As a result, Hine's poems, unlike the brittle pirouettes of the formalist, seem to take shape, in all their glistening eloquence, hot from some secret forge...Hine succeeds at something which once was commonplace but has now become sadly rare: he writes poems which give pleasure to the reader."
-Eric Ormsby, Canadian Notes & Queries

"Hine's robust language…gleams with what sonneteers used to call sprezzatura, the confident, making-it-look-easy gloss that greases great art."
-Jason Guriel, Poetry

There's only one disappointment June 24 2013
By C. Cottrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the excerpt from &: A Serial Poem that appeared in Poetry Magazine some time ago, the sections of the poem were separated by the ampersand rather than numbers (as is the case in the full-length book) which detracts significantly from the dynamic of the piece. I don't know why the decision was made to make the switch to numbered sections for the book, but I don't think it works as well as the ampersand.

The individual passages themselves are a pleasure.
