Praise For…

"There is a mighty lesson in Atlantis and it is this—that we are helpless before fate, except in our demeanor. . . . Mark Doty has written a book that is ferocious, luminous, and important." — Mary Oliver

"Having by his third book raised the roof of the America Sublime, Doty is now concerned, like Clampitt before him, to frame doors and windows, to detail landscapes and outbuildings of loss which, in the ways of the Sublime, properly circumstantiated, are transformed, transcended, redeemed. A lost continent breaks through the surface, glistening still with tears, but exact, vivid, there." — Richard Howard
