Foust’s poems are fragmentary, hushed, and stripped down, they radiate lushness. —Sandra Lim, Boston Review
Foust has achieved a wide reputation in and beyond experimental poetry circles for his clipped, breathless poems, often no longer than one or two haiku, but packing an intimate punch that belies their length...Commenting on contemporary American life without explicitly describing it, Foust remains a poet to watch. —Publishers Weekly
Poetry translation is such tricky and unappreciated work—“translation is impossible,” Graham Foust and Samuel Frederick declare in their introduction to a volume of Ernst Meister's work in which they've performed that exact miracle. —Arielle Greenberg, American Poetry Review
