Sailing to Babylon Reviewed in Arc Poetry Magazine

Wonderful to read Chris Jennings' appreciative review of Sailing to Babylon in issue 70 of Arc Poetry Magazine. ​He writes, "in Sailing to Babylon, the formalism—the regular stanza patterns, sonnets, and the long poem in terza rima—prepares you to think about the fine line between an advanced knowledge of the rules of traditional poetic form and a mastery of the subtleties of traditional poetics. When a poet deploys tradition gracefully, as James Pollock has, the pleasure in the poems also renews my affection for tradition." A warm thank you to Chris!
