|Kane touches greatness here in the beautiful poignancy of Third Parent, a farewell to a late mother-in-law. Only a handful of American poems of the last few decades perform the work of mourning so eloquently. Kane is a meditative poet resigned to a kind of faithless faith that longs for a transcendence not available to it.| - Harold Bloom
