Spectacles is a full selection of Tom Sharp’s
poems—sometimes blue, sometimes funny, always
self-aware—from seven chapbooks previously published in limited
editions. These poems are in the Imagist line and acknowledge their
models, especially Williams and Creeley and Eigner . . . And the later
poems, mediated through other poets, expand and get longer, stronger:
at once clearer and more self-assured in seeing by saying . . .
You’ll like looking through these glasses.
—Professor Albert Gelpi, Stanford University
Spectacles is finally here, fresh as a daisy and clear as a
cloud in a calm lake . . . These poems are feeling-objects of just
the right number of words, to keep essential intrigue while rendering
plain as can be.
—David Bromige, author of Desire and Tight Corners & What’s Around Them
