Of Jorie Graham: "For 30 years [she] has engaged the whole human contraption — intellectual, global, domestic, apocalyptic..."

--James Longenbach, The New York Times

Of Fanny Howe: "[She] employs a sometimes fierce, always passionate, sparseness in her lifelong parsing of the exchange between matter and spirit."

--Poet Michael Palmer
