Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

Katz) Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture (2010). His exhibition Poetic Likeness: Modern American Poets opened at the NPG in Autumn 2012.

    Praise for David C. Ward 'These graceful, powerful poems catch the reader’s attention at every turn. Memories of family, flashbacks of place and deft images of civic life grow through craft and music into powerful self-questionings about purpose, mortality and even art itself. This is a memorable and moving book and these are poems to savour and re-read.'
