Hugh Seidman’s flexible, deft prosody, and his wry, bittersweet address to the sad, foolish predicaments of contemporary American life, are proof, yet again, of his importance. In an age of what Henry James called ‘tremendous trash,’ his work fairly shines with authenticity and integrity.

—Gilbert Sorrentino


An American original and even stronger than that, these last four decades, till these poems anchored by their extreme facts and debris-like assembling remind us of who this man Seidman has always been becoming, this maker made by his irreducible materials.

—Joseph McElroy


Listen to this poet. Really, Listen. ... Everything in this poet’s care is relevant, everything is important, everything is immortal.

—Thomas Wappat
