"dan raphael's poetry is recombinant linguistic treatment, an exploration past phrases and through language to the myriad complexity of things...raphael turns out to have absorbed his material after which we could it converse its piece via the medium of his voice...Nowhere is there a extra natural expression of the concept that shape may be the extension of content material. those poems breathe out and in with stressed depth, made but extra brilliant via the poet's urgent have to get whatever the entire approach throughout to the reader or listener. raphael takes us locations poetry hasn't ever been before." -- Charles Potts, The Temple, quantity 1, No. 2


"Dan Raphael's poetic saxaphone frequently seems like horns, bass, and drums jamming jointly improvisationally on the interwoven, gyred-up currents and cusps of this millenium changing into the next... those poems are really distinct and evocative. they're extremely smart Earth poems that face difficulties by means of exploring and through altering the character of the questions. they can be funny and immediately intensely critical. they're folksy virtually of their voice and concurrently a brand new department of excessive surrealism -- grounded in understanding and the inventive power of what is." -- James Grabill, writer of The Poem emerging Out of the Earth and status Up in Someone

"Dan Raphael is likely one of the progenitors of what I discuss with because the "real underground" of the modern poetry scene... just like the better of his contemporaries, Jake Berry or Will Alexander, Raphael takes his language into the rapidly constructing chasms of recent sci-tech terminology, whereas nonetheless protecting his stability of humor. sincerely, in interpreting his textual content, we're prior the tip of the 20 th century. we're glimpsing via a shattered kaleidoscope the socio-economic smash of the Jeffersonian perfect. "...don't admit the wear and tear, keep watch over the chaos." -- Ivan Arguelles, writer of Enigma & adaptations
