Editorial Reviews

"Swallows reminds us of course that writing great lyric is painstaking. On several occasions Corless-Smith seems almost obsessed with his own limitations, presenting cross-outs and revealing the indecision involved in realizing a poem--whether outlining an idea is necessary, or letting it lie implicit with fragment presents a truer truth. So those who've done it well are to be celebrated, and that they can be celebrated by exiting the limitations of the flat reality of things as they are and inhabiting the impossible house of language they unwittingly constructed. In the end, the book--the poet too? Up to you--possesses a mania that leaves you feeling you've been there to return."--John Deming, www.coldfrontmag.com
