Tony Quagliano in New Orleans with George Segal's sculpture, 1997

Tony Quagliano's contributions to Hawai‘i and to the world of poetry were many and wide
ranging. His was a singular voice in poetry. He revelled in the possibilities of language,
the sounds of words, and the potential for philosophical complexities. He was feisty,
humorous, joyfully exuberant and had an inviolable sense of justice — and all of that in
engaging poetry.
