Tar River Poetry Reviews William Trowbridge's "Put This On, Please."

Date: Jun 19th, 2015

Tar River Poetry gave a wonderful review of William Trowbridge's Put This On, Please for their spring issue. He is praised for his skill of making poetry seem effortless and enjoyable for his readers:

“The work of William Trowbridge, across the past three decades, centering on deep Midwestern experience and encounters with mass media, has been cause for celebration, one of the best things about American poetry. He brings unwavering receptivity and artistic control to the rhythms and tonalities of American experience, and his transmutations of that control into language are incontestably and wonderfully his own. His new-and-selected Put This On, Please—‘this’ being a hospital gown—does nothing to change that. The book is another American triumph for this marvelous writer.”
