A New Review of THE OLDEST HANDS IN THE WORLD

Kristina Marie Darling reviews Daniele Pantano’s fantastic poetry collection in the new issue of THE LITERARY REVIEW, and writes that “Each poem …offers readers a carefully-crafted stylistic engagement with the Modernist legacy of Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, and Richard Aldington.
