About Tantivy:

"Every word counts in Donald Revell. You must read him carefully— not because he’s difficult but because he’s profound. But that’s too inappropriate, that word; let me say sun-worthy, Sophoclean, God-drenched. Let me say grave, trust-worthy, loving, faithful, shocking, brilliant, honest. Let me say for dear life. One of America’s best poets."
—Gerald Stern
