What People are Saying About This
Brian Doyle's poems are truly wonderful: wise, playful, funny, acute, and sometimes poignant observations dealing with family, friends, nature, history, and language itself. But what is most remarkable about them is the good feeling that follows from having read them, as if you yourself have been seen by this fine poet, and been absolved.
Brian Doyle's writing is driven by his passion for the human, touchable, daily life, and equally for the untouchable mystery of all else. His poems, beautifully, cross and re-cross this difference, and his gratitude, his sweet lyrical reaching, is a gift to us all.
