Publishers Weekly

Schomburg is possibly the man who will save poetry for all of those readers who are about to give up on the genre.

—The Huffington Post

Schomburg brings a sense of stringency to his dark but airy towers of invention, dismantling easy assumptions. The poems are fun to read and they get below surfaces. 

—Robert Pinsky

Poetry that aims, admirably, to unsettle. And who doesn’t like to be haunted by a poem?

—Kelly Link
