Christy Desmet reviews Kenneth Burke on Shakespeare, edited by Scott L. Newstok

Cover of Kenneth Burke on Shakespeare"To conclude, I would like to offer a word of praise for the press. In an age when commercial presses are seeking out smaller manuscripts, Parlor Press is willing to publish a longer compilation of criticism such as this one. At the same time, there is no 'fluff'; the book is tight and—a tribute to both editor and press--cleanly edited. Not least important, the paper is of good quality, the typeface handsome, and the binding solid. My copy traveled by plane, train, and automobile across the Atlantic and suffered the usual indignities of academics' paperbacks, including the use of pens and pencils as bookmarks, all without significant wear. These production values, in combination with Kenneth Burke's quirky mind and Scott Newstok's judicious editing, make Kenneth Burke on Shakespeare an aesthetically pleasing as well as edifying read." (11/2007)

—Christy Desmet, The Upstart Crow 26 (2007): 124-28

Kevin Killian on Puppet Wardrobe by Daniel Tiffany

Cover of Puppet Wardrobe"It would be hard to summarize my views of Daniel Tiffany's book PUPPET WARDROBE without resorting to hyperbole. We all know there are dozens of undeservedly neglected poetry books arriving every year, but the mystery that surrounds this one is like that of the Mary Celeste, ominous and thick with Stygian gloom of the high seas. Tiffany should be a household name and not just for silver or breakfast! They should be carrying him on their shoulders when they win the Rose Bowl. You see, I'm at it already." —Kevin Killian (Amazon Top 100 Reviewer) at Amazon.com (10/2007).

"Tom Dvorske on Adam Clay's The Wash" in H_NGM_N: An Online Journal of Poetry and Poetics

Cover of The Wash"Clay . . . revisits romanticism and allows us to experience it in much the same way that I imagine those first readers of Blake, Shelley, and Clare might have experienced their work. And it’s a visit worth making." "Tom Dvorske on Adam Clay's The Wash" in H_NGM_N: An Online Journal of Poetry and Poetics.
