“There have not been many poet-biographers in this country. Carl Sandburg and John Berryman come to mind... Daniel Mark Epstein, author of seven volumes of poetry and now a fourth biography, is part of this select company. He writes not as a poet and biographer but as an amalgam of both.”

–The New York Sun
