Praise for Stan Rogal
"It is as though Rogal had snuck up on a whole regiment of stock cultural myths and assumptions, armed only with a folksong, imaginative muscle, abundant mother wit and a wicked talent for subversive wordplay: it's the surprise that enlivens; the trickster's art."
— Don McKay

"If there ever was a poet to articulate our collective death wish, Rogal is it."
