Unlike many of the Vietnam poems written at the time of the war or shortly thereafter-poems of anger or protest-Edward Micuss poems are composed, in every sense of that word. They delineate and measure their subjects- they do not advocate or hector- they do not sentimentalize. Many of them, like Ambush Moon and So We Shot, will take their places among the very best war poems. . . . The Infirmary is a book that keeps deepening its concerns. For all its early charm, it pretties up nothing. Yet its not without humor, and its prose interludes are written with the same care that the poems themselves exhibit. -from the foreword by Stephen Dunn, Judge of the 2008 Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize
