Description


Praise for Knute Skinner's poetry:

"Skinner has poems that for sheer beauty take your head off." -- John Gardner, on "A Close Sky over Killaspuglonane"

"If you want to know how real poetry reads, buy this book, read it, and keep it." -- Leonard Blackstone, on "Selected Poems"

"Skinner does the lot: the sacred, the profane, the formal and the loose, and does them all wonderfully well." -- John W. Sexton, Poetry Ireland News

"As fine and engaging a testament to the complicated nature of simple pleasures as any in contemporary poetry." -- Wayne Burroughs, Staples

"Skinner's mischievous eye never takes the ordinary for granted." -- Jennifer Matthews, Southword

"In a time when many poets cannot resist the grand gesture, Skinner's art is the achievement of presence in the places we go to: in field, kitchen, bar, dictionary, anecdote, joke, love bower." -- James Liddy, on "Learning to Spell 'Zucchini'"

"This is a stunning collection, full of mystery, cross-purposes, weird and tragic characters, and should be read from start to finish." -- Aidan Murphy, on "The Bears & Other Poems"

"Skinner works a seemingly homespun Gothicity which is yet quietly artful in the way it jolts the reader out of the even tenor of pleasant expectations." -- Tom Hubbard, Poetry Ireland Review

"There are very few books of poetry that you would run back into a burning building to retrieve. Make no mistake, 'An Upside Down World' is one of them." -- Frank Golden, on "An Upside Down World.
