Poetry. "The poems of R. Nemo Hill are certainly contemporary, but they are also more than that. They arise from an authentic encounter between the poet and the world, or the poet and himself, or the poet and something else. A critic somewhere online has referred to Nemo as 'a bit of a mystic,' but I don't see it quite that way. (and) As the reader probably is aware, nemo is 'no one' or 'no man' in Latin—for the above reasons, an apt name for this poet. And one thing that becomes clear from reading this book is that No Man's ear is a very good place to be. One is struck by the uncanny sense of timing in the inflections of sound and sense from poem to poem... I think of Nemo's poetry, therefore, as more mercurial than mystical; by turns earthy and visionary, witty and metaphysical, naturalistic and symbolistic."—Andrew Frisardi
