"David Rowe is Walt Whitman's wild child."--S.A. Griffin, editor, The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry

"...Rowe smashes right through the table, right through the floor, right through the apartment below, right on through the earth, to reach some Luciferian beauty shining in the shards of what's left of language." --Bookslut.com

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Poetry I've Come Across In Years, May 9, 2011
By Josh Wexler - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Unsolicited Poems (Paperback)
This is my new favorite book of poetry. I read it straight through the first night after I got it and couldn't stop reading it. I keep coming back to it, opening up to a random page and experiencing the thrill of the poems again. It's rare for me to find poetry that I can actually call thrilling. This is. Rowe's writing is so musical, and at the same time raw, gritty, and profane. His themes range from the lofty to the quotidian, from existential despair to fits of joy, and he writes about them all with equal mastery. The poems honestly sing of sacred love and primal lust, and stare heartbreak right in the eyes. They travel from New York to New Orleans to Mexico. They drink coffee and they drink wine and liquor and beer.

There is deep wisdom in this book, and it is communicated with visceral beauty. Get this book- you will be very happy you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly an American great of poetry, May 10, 2011
By m.m.harris - See all my reviewsThis review is from: Unsolicited Poems (Paperback)
David Rowe is the most influential poet currently living in New Orleans. His life, his writing and his presence are quintessentially poetic, vivacious and painfully beautiful. If, in one hundred years, the name of David Rowe is not uttered alongside the names of Walt Whitman, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Hart Crane, then American culture and art will be truly dead.
