Reviews

“Obsessively, elegantly, poignantly, David Dodd Lee immerses himself in the mysterious intercourse of self and place.
— Franz Wright



“David Dodd Lee’s poems just don’t work like anyone else’s, they’re far too possessed by their genius, beautiful, scary, saintly, grotesque—like the nature these poems confront us with again and again.”
— William Olsen



“Reading [Lee’s Ashberry erasure poems], Ashbery’s influence isn’t the faintest echo; it’s more like a house in the distance hidden in the fog, a house you only know is there because you’ve lived in this town for years. Written with inconsistent end punctuation and few line breaks—because the poems often unfold in a series of one-line fragmentary stanzas—Lee’s poems form narratives through juxtaposition and association. In fact, they deconstruct and construct narratives, and they do so simultaneously. Lee is, I think, nothing short of a collagist of the relentless internal monologue of human experience. His poems surprise us by continuing to surprise us.”
— Jay Robinson
