What the Critics Say

"It is always gratifying, it elevates the human spirit to see one our fellows...set his aim unbelievably high and incredibly hit the mark!" (David Madgalene, bilingual author of I Hear A Journeyman Singing)

"Light has blended very well the traditions of Shakespeare, Homer, and the English language sonnet, without erring on the side of pretense. The language is high, direct, and modern. I'm thrilled with these." (Zachary Bos, editor of Sixty Six: The Journal of Sonnet Studies)
