Books Info:

Daily Horoscope free pdf "Daily Horoscope" is a stunning first book . . . Gioia is a master of forms. He experiments with old ones, and in a few instances has taken to inventing new ones."--Robert Phillips, "Arrival"
"Page for page, seldom has a first collection offered so many aesthetically, psychologically, and philosophically satisfying poems."--ALA "Booklist"
"In combining the powers of form and narration, Dana Gioia is the poet who most fully realizes the potential of the New Formalist movement."--Robert McPhillips, "The Sewanee Review"
"Daily Horoscope," in the finest sense, represents the perfect synthesis of maker and object made. It would be specious to praise this volume as a first book. Gioia has given us a book that is more accomplished than recent publications by many more celebrated practitioners."--Robert McDowell, "The Hudson Review"
"Here we have a truly exceptional poet. In his mid-thirties, Dana Gioia can be compared to Wallace Stevens and not be routed by the comparison."--Raymond Nelson, "Virginia Quarterly Review"
