"Guy Thorvaldsen's craftsmanship is flawless. His insights are judicious; his perceptions are fine; his voice is excellent, sonorous, controlled; his observations are precise and clear; his dramas compelling. What is unique herre is the love this poet has for the world he finds himself in, and the power that love has to make each encounter in these poems numinous and full of grace." -- Vijay Seshadri 2016 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry
