Summary

InThe Dreamhouse, Tom Sleigh's poetry is a medium for both revelation and linguistic invention. The meditative clarity of Sleigh's poems, his ability to range between the plain and high style with complete naturalness of intonation, and the varying and always surprising musical effects he accomplishes in each poem display his unequaled flair for innovation that is never willful or forced but which always works to forward the poems' emotional and intellectual resonances.The Dreamhousemarks Sleigh as one of the most inventive and provocative poets of his generation. Praise for Tom Sleigh: "Through sheer artistry, Tom Sleigh manages to write . . . in a transcendent way, and without appeal to the metaphysical assumptions transcendence usually requires.The Chain. . . floods darkness with brilliant craft."--Gray Jacobik,Boston Globe "Tom Sleigh's second book of poems,Waking, is so fine one can hardly do justice to it in a review. . . . Sleigh is nearly as prodigal with his gifts as Yeats."--Liz Rosenberg,New York Times Book Review
