Mandy Pannett at Sentinel Quarterly wrote a very generous review of Not for Art nor Prayer.
“What appeals to me about Not for Art nor Prayer is not only Darren Demaree’s poetic craftsmanship in areas of syntax, form, layout and style, but the feeling he has for language with its endless possibilities for richness and subtlety. On the one hand are poems where words are precise and everyday with a contemporary touch such as ‘your short, bent/body, always, in labor/com-/pressed, never beat-/en’ (Adoration #28). On the other hand – and this is what, in my opinion, marks Darren Demaree out as a top quality poet, we have language that is heightened and transformative.”
