About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Roberts, Len

Review:

“The strange word that comes to mind when I think of Len Roberts’ poetry is ‘loyalty’. Loyalty to language, loyalty to the past, loyalty to the spirit. There is a beautiful moral presence in these poems. We should be grateful that our poetry will be in the hands of such as he.” ― Gerald Stern

“Sometimes the facts of Len Roberts’ world are raw, nearly coarse, the questions that it asks of experience nearly brutal, but there is always in the poems a gentle sensibility, a probing intelligence and an acute attentiveness to what is urgent in our lives that tempers the poems, and that situates them firmly in that precious space between poet and reader which is our common bond, and common exaltation. ” ― C. K. Williams

“Discovering these new poems I was pleased―the compositions are readable, and natural, real, American, they’re narrative epiphanies. Pip’s asphalt accuracies, First Kiss’ lightning landscape, for instances, among many strong clear-minded poems. Marden Hartley’s Lewiston Is a Pleasant Place and your From the Dark are grounded in native humane and objective perceptions.” ― Allen Ginsberg
