Sure Signs is complete and mature work of poetry.  There is little in contemporary poetry that can compare with it in excellence. . . . I find myself surprised at its freshness, the purity of the writing, its open-eyed honesty, its humor and kindliness, its strength of character, its overwhelming sense of place, and so much more. . . . I see it as a lasting work, comparable to the best of the Spoon River or Frost in his richest vein.”
—Karl Shapiro

“We had known, some of us, that Ted Kooser was good, but how good this substantial volume tells.  He  has, with his wit and his earthiness, his imagination and his lucidity, staked out as his own a region—western it is—somewhere poetically between Frost and Williams (he shows us, to our surprise, how close they were).  It is, in short, a volume we can all feel—and we will in the indefinite future—grateful for.”
—Theodore Weiss

“[These poems] are evocative of loneliness, friendships, great distances, the value of things usually disregarded and of lives usually unsung; and all this in a way that is pecularly American.”
—Denise Levertov
