  • (1888PressRelease) September 23, 2021 - “Louis Gallo’s poems are always beautifully crafted yet accessible. They are savvy yet heartfelt, ironic but wistfully so.”—Gail Howard, poetry editor, Thema Magazine

    “A writer of fiction (much of it hilarious) and essays both scholarly and personal (often the product of deep study), as well as a teacher who has opened the minds of generations of students, Louis Gallo is a poet of many dimensions…”—Ralph Adamo, editor The Xavier Review, author of Ever

    “...But reliant as he is on such colossi of often abstract, complex ideas, his poems first and foremost are always anchored with keen wit in the grit and gristle of a living world, one Gallo clearly finds both intoxicating and erotic…”—Randall R. Freisinger, author of Plato’s Breath, winner of the May Swenson Poetry Prize, Utah State University Press

    A mind well stocked with poetic lore, historical detail, and metaphysical perplexities, where ideas suddenly pop up like champagne bubbles that pleasantly inebriate the reader, plus a sense of humor that’s identifiable, once you taste it, among all others in the market. What else could you wish for in a poetry collection? Ah, yes, music. You will find it all in Louis Gallo’s Scherzo Furiant .

    —Ricardo Nirenberg, Editor, Offcourse Literary Journal ; author of Cry Uncle and Wave Mechanics

    Louis Gallo is the founding editor of the now-defunct journals, The Barataria Review and Books: A New Orleans Review. His work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize several times. He is the recipient of a NEA grant for fiction. He teaches at Radford University in Radford, Virginia.
