Dick Allen, the Connecticut state poet laureate who selected this book for the Grayson Books Poetry Prize, calls Simply to Know Its Name “a deeply splendid collection. Few poets have looked as rapturously well at sperm whales, the American buffalo, the poor-will, and the star-nosed mole. Simply to Know Its Name marries rich imagery with luxurious tonal effects. I read and reread this book … and I was entranced.”
