“David Goodman has introduced a poet who in his combination of political engagement and literary excellence easily bears comparison to such internationally known poets as Federico de Garcia Lorca, Vladimir Mayakovsky, and Osip Mandelstam.”
Janine Beichman in The Journal of Japanese Studies  

“Oguma’s poems are like brilliant points of light in a dark valley—beautiful, intense, unwavering.”             John W. Dower, University of California-San Diego
