—Jonathan Farmer, from "'A Ravising Mind': On the Pleasures of Linda Gregerson's Poems"
“Linda Gregerson is a distinguished voice in American poetry . . . Here
is a poet of proven eloquence who consistently shapes the perfect vessel
for her grieving and vigilant but capacious poetic perspective.”
". . .of all the terrific American poets working today, Gregerson is best at complex, disabused acts of empathy. Probably no poet so smart (Gregerson is also a leading scholar of the English Renaissance) dares to take people and sadness so seriously."
—Dan Chiasson, from "Summer Books: What Slate is Reading this Summer"
