The Sentence.

“Rich with sound and imagination, these masterful poems teach us to pay attention to not just the matter of our lives but the music of our lives.” -- Ada Limón

“All poets start out as artists, a blessed few eventually become craftspeople, too. Morri Creech is a craftsperson as well as an artist, and the poems in The Sentence are uncommonly well-made things.” -- Shane McCrae

“The Sentence is a book of reflections, refractions, raveling, and ramifications with breathtaking branchings of syntax, sonic permutations, and Frostian forks foreclosing other lives.” -- Dora Malech

“Somehow, remarkably, this collection seems both more impersonal and more personal than Creech’s earlier work, more wide-ranging in its expression of common experience yet even more deeply felt, sentence by artful sentence.” -- Joseph Harrison

“The Sentence is Creech’s best book to date, its feats of imagination his most sweeping and its reckonings his most clear-eyed.” -- David Yezzi
