In the new issue of Presence:A Journal of Catholic Poetry, award-winning novelist Karen Ullo reviews The Hanging God. She writes:
The book is Wilson's eighth, the previous seven having been both collections of poetry and scholarly nonfiction. Here again he proves why he has been widely honored by the literary establishment, both Christian and secular. Wilson finds meaning in form, and though he liberally weaves together any number of different meters and rhyme schemes--sometimes within the same poem--his work is always characterized by adherence to the classical traditions of poetry.
And further along:
the book gives its readers a glimpse of the Light and shows once again why James Matthew Wilson's star continues to rise.
