Orbis #143

Orbis #143 arrived in the post today. I was glad to see, along with my new poem, "To A God Not Believed In", a review of my Canada-published collection, Winter Tennis (DC Books, 2007), by poet-critic Sarah Law.

In it she writes: "I found a great deal to admire reading through Todd Swift's fourth collection. ... Swift's poetic voice(s), as well as what feels like an infinite fund and combination of words, shifts and crystallises in a unique way on each page. ... Swift's style frequently embraces the Baroque, as he makes use not only of plentiful internal rhymes and echoes but also of interesting linguistic syntactical excursions. ... Buy this book."
