“Louis Gallo is an astute observer, who auspiciously employs Poetry as a vehicle to portray the manifold nature of the world he is capable to grasp with all his senses, taking the readers along on his sensory ventures. In Clearing the Attic, this prolific and energetic poet again proves he excels in his honest and masterful approach to longer forms.” - Kristina Ko?an, Poet (Šara, 2008; Kolesa in murve, 2014; Šivje, 2018) Slovenia
“Louis Gallo’s poems are always beautifully crafted yet accessible. They are savvy yet heartfelt, ironic but wistfully so.” - Gail Howard, Poetry editor, Thema Magazine
“A writer of fiction (much of it hilarious) and essays both scholarly and personal (often the product of deep study), as well as a teacher who has opened the minds of generations of students, Louis Gallo is a poet of many dimensions …” - Ralph Adamo, editor The Xavier Review, author of Ever
“...But reliant as he is on such colossi of often abstract, complex ideas, his poems first and foremost are always anchored with keen wit in the grit and gristle of a living world, one Gallo clearly finds both intoxicating and erotic. ..” - Randall R. Freisinger, author of Plato’s Breath, winner of the May Swenson Poetry Prize, Utah State University Press
