Reviews / Endorsements

“It is my belief that Christopher Middleton is the finest poet writing today. It may take some time for this to be generally recognized, but why wait? Read him now, in this splendid collection.”—Carolyn Kizer

“Christopher Middleton’s rare genius for exact observation and metaphysical wit has given us for over half a century now poems of such brilliant craftsmanship and exacting sensibility that a few critics only have dared to assess their magic. He is an incomparable stylist, a wry ironist, a philosopher of words. The only category in which he fits justly is that of poet.”—Guy Davenport

Born in Cornwall in 1926, CHRISTOPHER MIDDLETON studied at Merton College, Oxford, and taught German at Kings College, London. Since 1965 he has taught at the University of Texas, Austin.
