Praise for The Silent Partner
Storyline Press, 1995
The Silent Partner, Greg Williamson’s excellent first book is the work of a meditative mind, and at the same time of a sharp eye devoted to concrete reality. He is concerned with such matters as the desire to shape the world, the risk of fraud and imposition in all shaping, and the fugitive nature of all orderings. His mind and eye combine splendidly to realize these themes…it seems to me that Williamson has every gift, technical or imaginative, and that the appearance of The Silent Partner is a real event.
Winner of the 1995 Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize.
“Greg Williamson’s poetry is remarkable for its clarity and charged feelings…The Silent Partner is a stunner of a first book. Read it.” –Wyatt Prunty
“Beyond Greg Williamson’s astonishing formal control and inventiveness, it’s hard to know which to admire more: the local wit glinting out from almost every line, or the more reticent but equally pervasive wisdom about both art and life which informs these funny, shrewd, beautiful and perspicacious poems.” –Rachel Hadas
