"Martin Rock's remarkable debut collection takes on nothing less than making the unsayable (as Heidegger perceives it) 'legible.' ... For all its critical engagement and thoughtfulness, it never loses the necessary, bodily pulse. Rock's is a wonderful new voice to encounter, a poet who takes from several different canons within our poetic tradition and makes something utterly his own from them."—Erin Belieu
