“Henry Williams’s poems are brilliantly polished surfaces, beneath which we’re privy to the exuberant volatility of his language, itself barely fixed, all of it still vibrating from its passage through the event horizon of its own becoming. In this way Williams reminds us of nothing less than the sheer force of our existence.” —Christopher Grimes
“It is exciting to be among the first readers of a poet with Henry Williams’s unique combination of gifts: intelligence, passion, originality, inventiveness, and wit.” —William Harmon
