About Mark Scott


There can be heard in the poetry of Mark Scott the voice of a young poet of exceptional distinction... — Richard Poirier

Mark Scott possess perfect pitch: a conversational music, a feel for dense textures of sound and unpredictable shifts of syntax. ... He is a delicious love poet, a provocative linguistic banterer, a moving and painful elegist. — Alicia Ostriker

By turns subtly figurative then frank and physical as an open hand, Mark Scott’s poetry is true to its theme. ... The voice is that of an original mind quite (yet quietly) unlike any other: playful, modest, profound. ... With an elusive directness making its findings highly readable, this mind/body balance of Tactile Values seems unique in American poetry. — Reg Saner
