Reviews

"Will one day rank alongside of Edgar Lee Masters, Robert Frost, and William Carlos Williams."--Minneapolis Tribune

"Ted Kooser is a poet whose company will always be welcome, whether in Nebraska or in East Anglia."--Hudson Review

"His trademark star turn: Kooser smoothly, seamlessly elevates the humdrum moments to the sublime. . . . His attitude that 'poetry is communication' is refreshing in an era when so many poets seem to be babbling to themselves, giving us pages ripped out of their narcissistic diaries."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Now that he has been appointed Poet Laureate of the United States, he should receive the readership he deserves."
--TLS (Times Literary Supplements)
