  • Why should we read Doty? Because he is the finest American poet of the last twenty years, the most forceful and inventive versifier to appear in print since the death of Robert Lowell in 1977.

    Michael Glover, New Statesman
  • Having published the first poem and the last, I thought - having read the old poems too - I had known what to expect, but the senses are always new, and Doty's loyalty to them, and to the sense they make, continues to astonish, to enlighten, to console.

    Richard Howard
  • Mark Doty is a master, re-painting our sad daily canvas, heightening the gold light, the diffusion, the shocked shattered glass and the artificial bath of attitude, letting us see it all arrayed, as he says, under the 'uncompromising vault of heaven.
