Reviews

"At its best . . . the poem resembles A.R. Ammons's longer improvisations, with DuPlessis opening the mind's floodgates and finding the perfect rhythm for channeling its contents."--Publishers Weekly

"DuPlessis reinforces the subversive possibilities of modernist/projectivist field poetics by approaching page space as a register of the social dynamics, including the gender dynamics, of marginalization."--Lynn Keller, author of Forms of Expansion: Recent Long Poems by Women

"At its best . . . the poem resembles A.R. Ammons's longer improvisations, with DuPlessis opening the mind's floodgates and finding the perfect rhythm for channeling its contents."--Publishers Weekly

"Rachel Blau DuPlessis does what all good poets must do: she crosses, and indeed transcends, boundaries...She has a masterful feel for form...and her ear can be astonishing. Her visual imagination is rich and her capacity for wordplay is considerable."--Robert Long, Philadelphia Inquirer
