    Donnelly is a poet everyone should read.
    —David Wheatley, The Guardian

    If Whitman had had a young kid and a Brooklyn apartment, too many bills, and stack of takeout menus in the top drawer of his Ikea desk, he would have written these poems...
    —Dan Chiasson, The New Yorker

    [The Cloud Corporation] is an extraordinary collection—the poetry of the future, here, today.
    —John Ashbery, The London Times

    Dramatic tension, humor, lyrical profundity. This is an utterly ingenious and proudly inclusive voice, incorporating clouds—you cannot turn away from it...
    —Carol Muske-Dukes, Huffington Post

    Timothy Donnelly meditates on the very terms that make meditation possible—terms such as “knowledge,” “mystery,” “particular,” “mind,” and “will”...and he makes the tough time we have pinning those terms down into one of his typical subjects. His kind of pessimistic introspection, cast in long sentences and in three-line stanzas, might remind you of late Wallace Stevens...
    —Stephen Burt, Coldfront

    Timothy Donnelly is a talented writer...an astonishing technician...
    —David Orr, Poetry
