Poet Cathal O'Searcaigh calls Ted Deppe "a visionary of the real". Deppe's "Chekhovian eye and heart" have been praised by Stephen Dunn, and Betsy Sholl celebrates his "stunning eloquence". Mark Doty writes, "Theodore Deppe's scrupulous attention is tender, uncompromising, and full of a rare quality of moral weight. Witness has been raised to an art; everything is at stake in these painstaking, loving observations".

Cape Clear: New and Selected Poems makes Deppe's work easily available for the first time outside the United States. It contains fifty-two pages of new poems and a selection from his previous collections.

"This is writing of the highest order."
Poetry Ireland Review
