"Wojahn melds the political and personal in a way that is unparalleled by any living American poet." –Tom Sleigh
For The Scribe
“From his startling first book Icehouse Lights, to the great integrity, virtuosity, and emotional power of From the Scribe, the poetry of David Wojahn has met the highest standards of achievement. Poems insightful, inclusive, and deeply felt, of celebration and of love—poems of morally urgent testimony to the most pressing social, political, and cultural issues of our time, and the art of poetry itself—For the Scribe contains poetry’s every truth." –Lawrence Joseph
"Wojahn is one of the few American poets since Lowell
who has believably joined public and private life..."
