"Keithley’s talent is remarkable; he seems to possess Whitman’s visionary imagination, that rare ability to evoke powerful, scaled-down, lyric details in the service of a vast structure."
--American Poetry Review


Praise For The Starry Messenger (Pitt Poetry Series)

"Keithley’s talent is remarkable; he seems to possess Whitman’s visionary imagination, that rare ability to evoke powerful, scaled-down, lyric details in the service of a vast structure."
--American Poetry Review


“So moving and precise is Keithley’s depicition of the life-loving Galileo and his enemies’ death-dealing tools that the ending becomes inevitable if no less tragic.”
--Booklist
