Reviews

"Harry Brown is a poet who will feat ‘On a dish of turnip greens/Seasoned with cracklings.’ That is to say, he is a populist poet, one who disdains the hifalutin, the portentous, the sentimental in favor of the grainy, the weathered, the homely, the familiar. You see and feel – and cherish – the adze marks on these strong lines." Fred Chappell
