Larry Levis (1946-1996), a native of Fresno, California, wrote six books of poetry: Wrecking Crew (1972), The Afterlife (1976), The Dollmaker's Ghost (1981), Winter Stars (1985), The Widening Spell of the Leaves (1991), and Elegy (1997).
"If I could select one book of poetry from the past year to read and read again, this is it. If I could teach only one poet to younger poets, it would be Larry Levis.... If I could describe everything poets want their poems to do, regardless of their style and intentions, I would turn to Levis's poetry, once again, and not say a word." - Ray Gonzalez, Bloomsbury Review "As his command of the poetic line widened, Levis's poetry became almost literally breathtaking, a kind of verse that spelled itself out and cast its spell in such sinewy inventive cadences that the leaves to which he referred in 'the widening spell of the leaves' might well have been those most powerfully American bits of foliage, Leaves of Grass." - Sandra M. Gilbert, Poetry
