"Cole's private but accessible poems reconnect with the life of the senses . . . Direct and elegant . . . Blackbird and Wolf dazzles."
-- Katie Peterson,
Chicago Tribune

"Mr. Cole is peerless, and this collection proves it."
-- Michael Brendan Dougherty, 
The Washington Times

"Henri Cole's tranquil vistas are dappled with a chiaroscuro of pain . . . In his dogged attempts to embrace nature's apparent grotesqueries, Cole approaches the sublime that Wordsworth defined as a mixture of awe and terror . . . Blackbird and Wolf is Cole's most moving book to date."
-- Phoebe Pettingell, 
The New Leader
