I am always happy to drop everything--pretty nearly--when I make the acquaintance of a new poet as good as E.M. Schorb. James Dickey, poet and novelist The poems of E.M. Schorb shine calmly even as they buzz with energy; are connaissant with the world and yet transcendent of it; make something deeply funny and yet highly sad--given a world and a time and a good mind¡¦s eye. This is the work of a mature intelligence, its ironies unadulterated by cynicism, and its swells informed by understatement. fnfnHeather McHugh, poet and critic Schorb¡¦s poetry is rich with humor and an almost gestaltic sense of clarity; this unique voice allows him to maintain a tonal unity while moving through a variety of forms. fnfnRaymond Thibodeaux, New Delta Review Schorb draws from science, art, literary history, and popular culture, balancing these subjects in a thoughtfully conceived and organized book. Lurking behind all is the danger and violence of life--call it man¡¦s and nature¡¦s inhumanity to each other--which Schorb handles maturely, without cynicism, and often with a humor that places him somewhere between Marvin Bell and Kenneth Koch. fnfnfnTodd Verdun, The Carolina Quarterly I think Ed Schorb is one of our very finest poets. Some of the poems are breathtaking both for their literary skill and for their human appeal. E.M. Schorb¡¦s work has range, variety, wit, depth and a zest for both language and life. fnfnAnthony S. Abbott, Dana Professor of Literature emeritus, Davidson College "Schorb's poems are good modern poems, on a high literary level--some are touched with greatness." Cornel Lengyel, poet, playwright, publisher: Dragon's Teeth Press
