Poetry

“People are hungry for truth, wisdom and beauty to help them cope with the challenges of being human, and poetry offers exactly that. A poem written by a stranger who was born 200 years ago, or 20 years ago, can articulate in a short space the promptings of our own private hearts.” —Angela Alaimo O'Donnell, author of Andalusian Hours and Love in the Time of Coronavirus

 

“Paraclete continues to issue carefully selected books of poetry. . . they have modestly put themselves into the front ranks of poetry publishers in America.” — Ray Olson, former poetry editor, ALA Booklist


“Paraclete Press has been publishing an increasingly adventurous catalog of contemporary poetry, ranging from the late Phyllis Tickle, one of the guiding spirits of the press, to Scott Cairns and Paul Mariani.”  Library Journal, December 2017
