Praise for Quartet for J. Robert Oppenheimer
“As a poetic biography, Kelly Cherry’s Quartet for J. Robert Oppenheimer is a stunning tribute to one of America’s most significant scientists. As Cherry traces the life of Oppenheimer, she compels us to consider not only our condition as human beings but our responsibility to each other and our world. Cherry’s work is a remarkable achievement.”—The Journal
“My general rule when getting a new book of poetry in my hands is to resist rushing it, limiting myself to a couple poems a day to meditate with. But from the first lines of Quartet for J. Robert Oppenheimer, I couldn’t put the book down. I found it gripping, a real page-turner.”—Image
