From Library Journal:

Bradley is an intensely philosophical and formal poet. But the effect of his often overwrought language is curiously flat. Thus, an ideal city is described as "a place most unlike those gray convolutions,/ Those tortuous inclinations, mechanisms of defense/ The medieval warren in which it had been imagined." He rises above the academic in a tour de force about New York City ("Just when you get used to it, get to know your away around,/ The city you knew is gone"), in a portrait of a Chinese poet in exile, and an ironic portrait of Orpheus ("Fated as he was to indecision,/ To second thoughts, a lifetime of revision"). But all too often these poems are too remote, too engaged in abstraction, to truly engage the reader.
-Kathleen Norris, Lemmon P.L., S.D.
