George Garrett recommends
A Word in Your Ear, poems by Monroe Spears: “The late Monroe Spears (1916-1998) was one of the major critics and editors
(The Sewanee Review) of our time. That he also wrote first-rate poetry was sometimes overlooked. As Daniel Hoffman has written about this volume: ‘Those who know Monroe Spears through his incisive work of criticism will be gratified but not surprised to find his judgments grounded on his practice as a fine poet himself.’ ” (LSU)
