“Dan Albergotti’s poems are deeply felt and finely realized. He is a poet of a truly humane intelligence—not simply knowledgeable, but capable of transforming knowledge into compassion, into joy, into art—showing us again and again what it is to be fully alive and engaged in our difficult world.” —Natasha Trethewey, US Poet Laureate and author of Thrall

“Dan Albergotti’s work is formally poised, intellectually challenging, and poignant—suffused with the literary, religious, and linguistic past, and utterly attentive to contemporary life. With his first few books, he has established for himself a significant place in the landscape of American poetry.” —Alan Shapiro, author of Night of the Republic
