Peter Fallon - News of the World (clothbound)

1993   79 pages

"I have the greatest liking for Peter Fallon's poetry. It does not filter the world of the small farm for some urban reader; rather it takes him there. It does so without sentimentality, giving us for instance the brute weariness of farm work (Pastorale) as well as the triumph of work well done (The Old Masters). On the whole, Fallon's words move artfully within the lexicon of the rural town; their poetry is in the rightness of naming and describing, the exact ear for the beat and savor of country speech, the honest tuning of the poet's feeling toward his chosen place." Richard Wilbur
