Reviews / Endorsements

“Robert Gibb's new collection, Sheet Music, is quickly evident in its striking trompe l'oeil cover. Sheet music provides a musical blueprint from which musicians perform in time and space, much as actors realize a dramatic script, an audibilizing process that is unavoidably idiosyncratic because of all the human variables involved. Indeed, the title of Gibb’s collection is a bit more accurately represented like this: ‘SHEET MUSIC: poems,’ because the poems in Sheet Music are not just ‘about’ music but also about themselves, metaphorically re-presenting the innate musicality of both their forms and their content.”—Stephen C. Behrendt, Prairie Schooner

“Robert Gibb’s poetry will give readers an idea of what Wordsworth might have been had he lived in the late twentieth century.”—Tar River Review



ROBERT GIBB was born in Homestead, Pennsylvania. He is the author of eight books of poetry, including What the Heart Can Bear, published in 2009 by Autumn House Press. Among his awards are two Poetry Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and seven Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grants.
