Tupelo Quarterly Review


The Tupelo Quarterly has published Derrick Austin’s review of Second Empire:

“…an astounding symphonic arrangement…I fondly think of Second Empire as gorgeous chamber music, poems whose bracing intimacy belies a vivacity and subtle, structural integrity… [Richie Hofmann] possesses an Old World eye, like a character out of Henry James, raised in our era…Hofmann’s language is lush in its accuracy and sensuous in its silences. Eros hums through the poems.”
