Poet and essayist Jeff Gundy says of Lines from the Provinces: "In these vivid, urgent poems David Wright contends-- sometimes angrily, often tenderly--with a whole series of his crucial loves and adversaries: family, landscape, history, faith, his fellow poets and teachers. Among this welter his voice rings out, modest but stubborn, gentle but keen, funny but quite serious, and always alert for the secrets to be found in such canny, lyrical explorations of the provinces."
