“I can’t think of a living poet who writes such incredible sonnets. ... He travels with ease from the Iliad to his local fields. ... It’s hard to tell if he’s a poet of regular life who is good at stumbling upon depth, or a deep poet who knows that the quotidian is precious. And it’s not clear that it matters.” Laurel Maury, The Los Angeles Times

“...a contemporary who should endure over the life of our language.” Donald Hall

“War--what it does to combatants and to their children--becomes a preoccupation throughout Longley’s work. ... Yet marital love and tenderness, domestic calm and pastoral counterpoise also stand among Longley’s signature subjects. ... Longley’s genius is pastoral and commemorative. ...” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
