About A Unified Theory of Light:

"Ted Worozbyt probes essence after essence, getting the music just right as he turns himself over to 'the shifting forces / and invisible objects which form our ideas of love.' An intoxicating collection, dazzling in its wording, and perfect-pitch in matters of the heart."
—Robin Behn

"Rarely has a title been more apt:  A Unified Theory of Light orders the disorder of this world with a kind of vision that shines. Wherever 'the corners / of things give way to shadow,' these poems thrum, these poems sing, these poems burn."
—Paul Guest

"Complex yet crisp, the poems of Theodore Worozbyt show us that he knows how to tell it slant, and for that alone we should read him. Worozbyt also shows us how to make the personal poem truly a work of art (e.g., 'Scarecrow,' 'Sadness,' 'Chess' — especially read in that order), and for that reason we should teach him. Read A Unified Theory of Light cover to cover once, then again, and perhaps again, to discover the quiet prize of its stunning unity."
—C.J. Sage
