Poetry. Tony Quagliano's contributions to Hawai'i and to the world of poetry were many and wide-ranging. His was a singular voice in poetry. He reveled in the possibilities of language, the sounds of words, and the potential for philosophical complexities. He was feisty, humorous, joyfully exuberant and had an inviolable sense of justice. This collection of his work exemplifies that existence and shows us all that LANGUAGE MATTERS.

In this collection of treasures, Tony Quagliano continues to live, and to show us that poetry matters--and life and laughter and places, and ideals, and doubts all matter. His politics and science are timeless. How wonderful to hear his music again.--Maxine Hong Kingston

Do they scream inside Paradise? They certainly do, and Tony Quagliano makes you hear it. Does Paradise also persist despite the screaming? It certainly does, and Tony lets it roll out in splendor. In his cool voice and lean lines you hear also the roar of our age with its mysteries and sorrows in plain sight. These are works of wisdom, instruction, and beauty.--Andrei Codrescu.
