Theodore Deppe


“These poems seem utterly fearless to me—willing to go wherever they must go, able to say whatever they must say. But it is not fearlessness nor honesty alone which strike me: Theodore Deppe has tenderness, he has music, he has passion. These poems hold true to the poet’s vision: The world is here, and painful, yet lovely, too.”

Additional Praise:

“In language lit with the brilliance of icons Deppe illuminates the lives of those we might disregard, as well as the gentle and damaged terrain of family history. This volume marks the debut of a poet of admirable merit.”
—Lynda Hull

“Theodore Deppe’s poems have both range and authority, combining compassion for his world with impressive prosodic skills. He speaks with authority because his poems…take nothing for granted, acknowledging the difficulties of grace and the tenuousness of human relationships.”
—David Wojahn
