Ira Sadoff

”To read an Ira Sadoff poem is to experience a dizzying journey. A single poem might move from the culturally and historically informed cynicism of his dominant tone, to introspection, even irrational joy--- a movement which becomes part of the subject matter itself and which is powered by the  magical workings of humor and the stubbornness of hope. With each book hope and joy gain a little more ground, despite the accrual of reasons to despair. I go to Sadoff’s poems for their rich honesty, their deep humanness, their complexity of vision and their energy. He is original, wholly relevant….indispensable. “
