This volume is highly original in its structure and modes. It addresses contemporary experience informed by the traditions and influences that shape its voice--the Greek tradition in particular. It is as though the poet has listened to the wisdom, fatalism, the foreboding, wit and, finally, the love of good things that the ancient epigrammatists gave the world. Edmund L. Keeley
The poems of Potshards are immediately accessible and mischievously intimate. N.C. Germanacos opens his heart and then tucks you in it, leaving you with a feeling of gratitude that you are alive. How could someone know this much about life unless he has been fully alive himself, and has learned so much from three thousand years?
