“Steve Benson comments that Levy is ‘thinking through a politics immediately, intimately discursive, heart-felt and -willed. ..valuing evolution, post-bop children reading rainwater: ideal address rubbed against the matter of fact.’ ‘From the incandescently estranging pastoral of from Indiana to the restlessly pivoting intimacies of Rumi Improvisa- ions and Speech Farm, Andrew Levy’s texts activate our agilities…This kaleidoscopic work is buoyed by the ‘complex indrafts’ of an impassioned reflexivity which takes us straight into the momentum of language as it evanesces.’”
