About Foreign and Domestic:

"How is it, then, amid these vacuous images, that Palmer Hall has managed to create a poetry of beauty and humanity? Perhaps because that is what poets do as they stare fixedly at their subjects, bringing them to that melting point that gives way to meaning."
—Briar Cliff Review (by Jeanne Emmons)

"The book is also about the vitality of poetry, something many of us who write it now doubt. Hall helps to convince us that we arenít wasting our lives and that if poetry does indeed 'make nothing happen,' it enriches our perception of those things that do happen and thus helps us live our lives."
—Valparaiso Poetry Review (by Janet McCann)
