Applause from Publishers Weekly for Phillis Levin’s Poetry

Publishers Weekly

“Pathos and sweetness dominate the careful, information-rich book, which should appeal to readers who admire Robert Pinsky or Gjertrud Schnackenberg,” reports Publishers Weekly of Phillis Levin‘s fifth poetry collection, Mr. Memory & Other Poems. ” This gathering of lyric pieces, short series, and anecdotes displays an admirable facility with forms (haiku, trimeter, some rhyme), but Levin improves on them by adding a light touch to the most serious subjects.”

Professor Levin is Hofstra’s poet-in-residence  and a core faculty member in the MFA in Creative Writing ProgramMr. Memory & Other Poems, published earlier this spring by Penguin Random House, explores motifs deeply social and historical, personal and metaphysical.
