Praise for Carl Dennis's Another Reason
"The poems in Another Reason, Carl Dennis's twelfth book of poems, open slowly and deepen with each reading . . . What he has to offer readers willing to take the time to walk and reason with him awhile is both profound and moving . . . Do yourself a favor: get this book and read it. Twice."
-- Carol Niederlander, Pleiades
"Dennis continues to eschew verbal flourish in favor of ethical force, extending the body of work that by now approaches the status of wisdom literature . . . He reminds us that poetry is not only an aesthetic but also a moral activity. It's another way of thinking as well as feeling, another way to reason through the choices we've made or will make." -- James Scruton, Valparaiso Poetry Review
