"Peter Campion's El Dorado yearns for the 'sweet barbaric closeness of our skin' that, given the way we live among the 'neural simmer / of wired voices' and its 'American everything jammed at once, ' has become increasingly difficult to find, and yet Campion does find it, and recording its patterns in fluent, fast-paced, dexterous, and formally various lines leads us back to the 'peculiar animal impress' of human encounter in which 'all connection / feels possible again: another's heat / and breath and laughter.' Unlike much contemporary verse that mimics the noise of modern experience, Campion's moves through it to find the deep and ancient melodies that insist on the truth and beauty of human love and friendship. El Dorado is a richly textured and provocative collection that clearly demonstrates Peter Campion is one of the most vital voices of his generation."--Michael Collier, author of An Individual History "Minneapolis Star Tribune"
