This is one of the two volumes of poetry (the other one is Louis Gluck's The Wild Iris) that I keep rereading. All at once lush, lyric and dream-like, sensual and ethereal, beautiful and sad, the poems in this book will always have something more in its lines and spaces for the reader to come back to. ...more

3 stars for now only because poetry is tragically wasted on me. I don't reread books, but The Proxy Eros deserves the effort. ...more

A superb collection from my favourite contemporary poet. At once modern and classical in its sweep.
