"Joe Amato proposes a poetry of discourse: he thinks, talks, and will try to persuade sometimes. The work is alive with intelligence.... For most of this century poetry has been coy about speaking its mind, and there have been persistent rumors that poetry has nothing to say, that it is a great former of forms but silent. Amato's poetry speaks, and it is important that we listen."

----Don Byrd

Joe Amato teaches English and composition at the Illinois Institute of Technology. His technical expertise is combined with passion, a fine ear for language, and a strong sense of social justice. Reading Amato's work is like watching a skilled professional put on a stunning display of 4th of July fireworks--even the most cynical can't help being taken in by the magic.
