Reviews

"I know of no other poet now writing who can command so many different verse forms and still maintain the illusion of the spoken voice. We find here blank verse, terza rima, the sonnet, tightly rhymed quatrains, each usually framing a dramatic monologue. These are dramatic poems in every sense of the word. Like his masters in the genre, Brugaletta is able to maintain the urgency and fire of the remembered event. . . .These are poems that we will remember, not just because they are such fine things in themselves, but because they remind us of what genuine talent can do when it puts craftsmanship first." - Eugene Montague
