Gregg Biglieri : Reading Keats to Sleep

This is a poem that is wonderful to read – especially aloud – over and over. I keep finding new things in it, line by line, phrase by phrase, sentence by sentence. For a book that is, in fact printed on a single sheet of paper and just 21 stanzas long, this is a remarkably rich and intense project.

— Ron Silliman
