Ploughshares[dead link][edit]


Publisher's Weekly (April 2000):

The book as a whole is a kind of triumph, one which perhaps does for poetry what David Foster Wallace has done for prose fiction.[1]


There is a gravity to Mark Levine's second book, "Enola Gay," the first of three volumes in a promising new poetry series from the University of California Press. The poems in it bear a sense of having struggled up from beneath great pressure to reach the page.[2]
