The uncorrected eye (published September, 2018)

"Like the woodpecker in this collection's first poem, Bauld pecks away in a 'paradiddle of discovery,' a jazz take on the joy and pain of contemporary life as he observes it. Fathers and sons, fading youth, marriage, learning Spanish, Basquiat, the teachings of nuns, the lives of monks comprise only some of the objects of his roving imagination. The Uncorrected Eye gives us a fresh view of life with new and bracing insights."

– Jo Sarzotti, author of Mother Desert

"The juxtaposed vastness of infinity with the intimacy of two people in a quaint cafe, and the reader being privy to the speaker's private thoughts, makes the poem feel genuine and not jaded, wry, snide, or highfalutin."

– Sri Siddhi N. Upadhayay, Poetry Editor, Harpur Palate

"Harry Bauld's 'Late Round' and 'Boxer' are fierce, melancholy lyric poems about the pain and joy of giving your all to a sport that destroys your body."

– Jendi Reiter, vice president of Winning Writers
