Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
"This is an utterly compelling, harrowing and masterfully written body of poetry. Its publication is a major literary event". -- The Los Angeles Times Book Review

The original edition of Life Supports, published in 1982, was greeted as one of the most significant literary works to appear in this country. Cited by The New York Times Book Review, as "one of our finest... poets", Bronk went on to win the American Book Award and a reputation, in the words of Kirkus Reviews, as "one of the most solid and unfrivolous poets". Since then, there have been nine additional books, including a volume of collected essays Vectors and Smoothable Curves, which the Los Angeles Times called "the products of a unified sensibility in the tradition of our most original prose stylists". Among writers of his generation, few are as esteemed by those who require the highest standards for the books they read.

Bronk's "rare gift" as an essay in the Voice Literary Supplement recently argued, "is the ability to float difficult truths on fleeting snatches of spoken breath". Bronk, according to Compound Eye, "is one of America's greatest living poets". According to poet and critic Michael Heller, he is "one of our modern masters". The new edition of Life Supports makes available once again one of the principal literary works of our time.
