The Essential John Reibetanz Reviews
As much as I enjoy the Essential Poets Series, this was one of the very few that did not resonate with me unfortunately. While I can see the merit in Reibetanz's poetry, and as always the critical introduction superbly frames the work, the structure and style of the poems often distracted from or obscured the verses (of which some are indeed beautifully written). That said, there were a few poems that touched me, such as The Wood Bird and Speech Therapy, that will see the volume stay on my shelf for future readings.
