“George Wallace realigns the rules... And the transcendent spirit, above materiality, is the spirit of Greekness, of Greeks. The poems in EOS are hopeful poems of what is possible, real, holy. The collection leaves me with a belief in the endlessness of people, their connection to the past—and to each other, and to all time.” — Tryfon Tolides, Tsotili, West Macedonia, Greece, Lannan Foundation Resident
