Reviews / Endorsements

“Tory Dent is an unparalleled voice in American writing. She takes the Whitmanian line . . . to heights and depths of extremity. Speaking from the interior of a consciousness immutably transformed by AIDS, our millennial plague, she enunciates . . . all human despair, in a language elegant and extravagant enough to be, itself, a kind of redemption.”—Marilyn Hacker

“Here’s a map where ideas and experiences collide, and what rises out of the landscape underneath is poetry that is painful and truthful, beautiful and terrifying, lyrical and narrative, always engaging the intellect and body politic.”—Yusef Komunyakaa

“Tory Dent has gone to a place where we are afraid to go, and come back with a vision, and she sings it. Her dazzling and valiant poems are the psalms of our present moment.”—Sharon Olds



TORY DENT’S (1958–2005) Selected Poems draws from her three books. Among her awards, she was the winner of the 1999 James Laughlin Award of The Academy of American Poets.
