Reviews

“I like these poems immensely. What Schley has done is to reinvent the ode, especially in the nine poems for the muses. Prosodically he's discovered an odic tone, grave but graceful, imaginatively objective. It's extremely effective, and it tokens a very large degree of literary depth and experience.” — Hayden Carruth
