"James Applewhite writes of his childhood and later life in rural North Carolina ('places not much in anyone's thoughts') in language whose timeless gravity and sweetness are close to sublime. An essential book."--John Ashbery "James Applewhite has individuated a logical and meditative voice all his own. I cannot think of more than a few living American poets who fuse so remarkably intellect and emotion."--Harold Bloom "James Applewhite and Seamus Heaney are the same kind of talents and Applewhite's Selected Poems suggests accomplishment worthy of comparison. It is rugged and refined, classical in decorum and local in idiom, deep in wisdom and clear as water in freshness. It is a compact, luminous etching of a singular imagination working to get down the way it was and is in this place on the planet."--Dave Smith
