ARAOP Review

At Reading Local: Baltimore, Celeste Sollod has written a very nice and depthful review of Adam Robison and Other Poems. She focuses on several different poems in the book. Here's one thing she says:

Robinson’s rhythm and skill with language reflect wide-ranging sources. “Joe Louis” has the staccato rhythm of a boxing match. “The Skeptic” recalls the childhood jump rope rhyme “Rockin’ Robin” with “all the little birds/on Jaybird Street”, while “More” echoes James Joyce: “Swim I said yes she said I’d go swimming”.

Check it out! (The book is here.)
