Poetry. "Inventive, ambitious, nimble, quick-witted, Tony Leuzzi's MEDITATION ARCHIPELAGO amasses poems of technical virtuosity and capacious insight. An alert, original personality is at work in this collection as subterranean vaults of feeling are excavated and reclaimed. And who doesn't need to be reminded of Leuzzi's comically useful wisdom: 'No one wants to be a bag of damp / waffles dragged through the valley of time'? It's a joy to have one's perceptions refreshed by these wickedly intelligent poems."—Lee Upton
