David Clewell, Poet Laureate of Missouri, gave an excellent review of William Trowbridge’s newest poetry collection Ship of Fool on Ron Slate’s website, On the Seawall. Focusing on a few of his favorite poems such as “Fool’s Family Album” and “Class of ’59”, Clewell comments:
“Now, once more into the breach comes Trowbridge, his sea-worthy Ship of Fool brimming with the exploits of a flexible character so wondrously based on the Fool archetype in literature, history, and popular culture so drolly told in what amounts here to third-person perfection.”
