smith-deedWhat the small press poetry world has known for years now finally garners national attention: this is a poetry to be reckoned with. (Tom Orange)

“The Good House” is a poem that is never less than itself, continually reinventing the topos of dwelling through the tropos of surprise. (Patrick Pritchett)

There’s a part in 3-D Imax Beowulf where Beowulf jumps out of the eye of a seamonster, presumably killing the beast. How he got into the eye remains unclear. Deed is better than that scene, and Rod Smith is more heroic than Beowulf, by far. (Steven Zultanski)

Also mentioned by Marie Buck and David Dowker.
