Reviews[edit]

“Daniel Hall’s work reminds us that a poet’s sharp-sightedness, the whole business of ‘getting things right,’ is a matter of far more than accuracy. It’s a matter of—inescapably—thanksgiving.[8]

Daniel Hall’s poetry also negotiates autobiography and desire, and much of his new collection, Under Sleep, pairs an impulse to elegy (it is dedicated to his late partner) with a love of perceptual activity, that impressionistic seeing and feeling that comes from the conflicting currents of mind and body and is the backbone of so much lyric poetry.[9]

Highly Recommended[10]
