Jeffrey Harrison reviewed by P. H. Liotta in the Chautauqua Literary Journal

Incomplete Knowledge has been called a "major achievement" in an insightful review by P.H. Liotta:

"In America, poetry remains the isolated art. And the quiet genius of Jeffrey Harrison, clearly, requires space and meditation. Yet, Incomplete Knowledge , while driven with the same polish and technique of his earlier work, goes much, much further. His lines are looser, images more direct, and his impact is often astonishing. For any reader, there is true discovery here. A poet of Harrison's genius is uncommon."
