Poetry Press from The Page

"[David] Lehman is less interested in excellent poems, which can only be consumed one at a time, than an idea, “poetry,” which he sets in opposition to the brutal zeitgeist." Jason Guriel • The New Republic

"The career of Gottfried Benn is a case study in disgrace." Adam Thirlwell • New Republic

"Shearsman are helping to create a mini critical industry on Roy Fisher, and it is greatly to be welcomed." Martin Casely • Stride

"For instance, I did a reading with Mark Strand in Frank Stella’s studio that was introduced by James Wright, who spoke glowingly of our work, but had our names confused, it turned out." Charles Simic • NYRB
