Oppen’s respect for the act of making, no matter how small, is at every moment palpable, and it infuses his work with sweetness that makes difficulty feel like life’s reward.

—James Longenbach, Yale Review

“Michael Davidson has done a masterful job of editing this new edition of the Collected Poems…. Few poets significantly alter and enhance the state of the art. Oppen is one of them.” —Michael Palmer, Bookforum
