Reviews

Praise for David Keplinger's Translation of The Art of Topiary "David Keplinger's translation seems to rise out of a love of language that's almost mathematical in music and pace. Thus, each line is well made, composed of lyrical density and movement, and the reader experiences this--not as conceit, but as actual. Each poem feels alive with intention, teaching us how to listen to its music. Here control becomes part of meaning. The mechanics of nature--where the organic becomes metaphysical, or the natural sculpted--are primary to the collection. This masterful accretive affect works in The Art of Topiary. Jan Wagner's vision has been exacted with care and know-how as Keplinger carries into translation the truth of a gesture, and this is where poetry resides."--Yusef Komunyakaa Praise for The Most Natural Thing "Stunning and visceral . . . His prose is so well-crafted and compact that you'd think they wrote themselves into the world--that they were born complete and right on their due date, with no complications."--The Rumpus "Evocative and haunting, a meditation on memory and the body and desire. It is, for the most part, a very quiet book that relies less on big stunning moments than small details . . . The fact that there is so much movement between the poems and across the book is remarkable."--The Fiddleback "A tender, graceful, and profound meditation on the ways in which we experience our bodies in the world; shuttling expertly between the narrative and the lyric, the ordinary and the wild, the book asks us to envision the body as that lived intersection between, as Keplinger would have it, the natural and the natural."--Triquarterly "Somehow this clever magical poet's fervor brings to the page a splendor of humanism--the extension of wit, delight and cynicism. He's at the top of the heap of the originals."--Washington Independent Review of Books Praise for The Prayers of Others "The question is less whether Keplinger benefits from the prose poem than whether prose poetry benefits from Keplinger--a question The Prayers of Others answers with a resounding yes."--American Book Review "The sustained invention of a tinkerer who takes his materials (so many of them fragile, easily discarded or mislaid) to heart even as he finds his humor, his consolation in the spirited play of their arrangements."--Antioch Review
