The subtlest feeling for the measure that I encounter anywhere except in the verses of Ezra Pound.” William Carlos Williams
It is a study, how Creeley lands syntax down the alley, and his vocabulary pure English to hit meters and rhymes all of which are spares and strikes.” Charles Olson
Robert Creeley’s poetry is as basic and necessary as the air we breathe; as hospitable, plain and open as our continent itself.” John Ashbery
Robert Creeley has created a noble body of poetry that extends the work of his predecessors Pound, Williams, Zukofsky, and Olson, and provides like them a method for his successors in exploring our new American poetic consciousness.” Allen Ginsberg

Robert Creeley (1926-2005) was David Gray Professor of Poetry and Letters at the State University of New York at Buffalo. The Collected Prose and The Collected Essays are also published by the University of California Press.
