About the Book
"Ernest Hartmann’s innovative work on boundaries opens new territory when applied to the construction and nature of the poem. For the very rhythm of the poem contains both the solidifying of boundaries and the need for more porous boundaries to accommodate change and intricate new moves in the poem – to move away from foregone conclusion and to permit the poem to be guided by surprising images and visions, to lose one’s way, so to speak, into new material, new voice.

"There is something about Hartmann’s work – the way lines parallel one another, or begin alike and break apart, slowly, carefully, the way Rilke might do it. I found myself wanting to go beneath the language to find the source – the Ur-Sprache – the language behind the language."
- Myra Sklarew, author of ten books of poetry, most recently Harmless.

"I do like your poems a great deal. My two favorites are ‘Another Poet’ and ‘Evening,’ which I admire for their complexity and ambition. I am also drawn to the purity and simplicity of ‘Attraction.’"
- Sandra Gilbert, Distinguished Professor of English Emerita at the University of California, Davis, author of seven collections of poetry, most recently Belongings.

"These are amazing! You are a genius!"
- An anonymous lover of poetry
