MEDIA REVIEWS

Francis is a modern American classic, better (say) than almost anyone who has been gifted with a Pulitzer or a National Book Award in recent decades. I claim him as better (say) than John Berryman or Robert Penn Warren or Delmore Schwartz or A. R. Ammons, and these people have written beautiful poems. As with Hardy, as with Frost, as with Richard Wilbur who has learned from him, Francis must be read in bulk. He does not write big poems. The accrual of small triumphs -- told in the same skeptical, tender, funny, and reticent language -- makes a big poem out of this Collected Poems.--Donald Hall "Ohio Review "
