“With his first collection of poetry, Lives, Lucas Hunt reveals himself as a young man with a philosophical bent. . . . He is ambitious as well as philosophical, but he is never grim. There is a kind of Keatsian ardor underlying his Eliotesque grapplings with the existential void . . . Lives marks the debut of a very fine poet.”
—The Southampton Press, NY
 
“Lives is a collection of brief, free-verse poems addressed directly to humanity and dreams... A spot-on accurate cross-section of insights into the uniqueness of not only individual life, but also the seemingly commonplace phenomena that affect it.”
—The Midwest Book Review
 
“This debut collection is one of the most beautiful and thought-provoking to appear in recent years. Subtle humor is woven into the fabric of an emotional landscape where the reader may muse, love, strive, and occasionally flounder in a strange and spiritual world; an America for all. . . Lives is funny and clever, but above all, hauntingly beautiful; Hunt's subjects use language to confess their vulnerability and hope.”
—Simon Van Booy, Frank O’Connor Award winning author of Love Begins in Winter
