Praise For New and Selected Poems

“Very few writers can actually shape how you see the world. David Lehman is such a writer.”
-Robert Olen Butler

“Inventive and often winningly sincere…Lehman is candid as well as ironic—sometimes, both at once. He generates a maniacal, irreverent, fast-thinking range of references to movies, poems, history.”
-Robert Pinsky

“Lehman uses many conveyances—including the prose poem, the sestina, and curt rhymes—to travel across the writing life of a poet whose instinctive romanticism is always bracing and tough-minded, brimming with a rare generosity.”
-Ken Tucker
