“Brilliant verbal alarms to shake us sleepyheads awake.”
“We are in the presence of a rare voice carrying a live message.”
“Carstens doesn’t write to please the masses; he writes to wake them from their slumber.”
“In one breath Carstens confesses to love and sin—of which neither he seeks redemption...”
“Carstens reconciles pain with experience in ways that you will remember and wonder why you have not found before.”
“Carstens is hands down the real deal.”
“Carstens has a knack for taking the obvious and turning it into an indictment.”
“Carstens doesn’t waste time with the flowers; he digs in the dirt, about six feet down, to the root of it all.”
“Compassionate, carefully crafted poetry fascinating to read and worthy of detailed study.”
“Carstens does not shy away from the truth, no matter how ugly, no matter how brutal.”
“Wolfgang Carstens, I have read your book twice in thirty-six hours. This is strange. I don’t like poetry.”
“Carstens is a brilliant poet, master storyteller, and superb creator of myths.”
