Essential Daryl Hine Reviewed in The Partisan

Derek Webster praises The Essential Daryl Hine in The Partisan: "The Essential Daryl Hine makes it obvious that the boy from B.C. really is one of the best we have. I don’t think it’s too great a leap to say that in Pollock, Daryl Hine has found his ideal editor. . . . Reading this selection, it's possible to tune into Hine at the wavelengths on which he was broadcasting. The experience, for me, is tremendous, exquisite and heartbreaking."

One of The Partisan's Best Books of 2015

I'm delighted that The Essential Daryl Hine was named one of the best books of 2015 by The Partisan. Brooke Clark, in his recommendation, describes Hine as "The best Canadian poet most people have never heard of," and adds that "this selection (which includes a brief, thoughtful introduction and a biographical sketch) is the ideal way to get to know a poet who deserves to be better known."

You Are Here Reviewed in UTQ

Robert Stacey, reviewing You Are Here in the Letters in Canada 2012 issue of the (pay walled) University of Toronto Quarterly (Vol. 82, No. 3, Spring 2014), writes, "The readings Pollock offers are thoughtful, knowledgeable, and precise. He is truly an excellent close reader of poems, his technical vocabulary is superb, and his command of the tradition enables him to tease out allusions and echoes of other works that are likely to be missed by the more casual reader. . . There is no doubt that You Are Here will be appreciated by many, especially practising poets and aspiring critics."
