Reviews


"The poems collected in Modernist Women Poets: An Anthology are diverse, but they are linked, too. Each seems to gaze directly and speak indirectly -- or sometimes vice-versa -- in that quintessentially modernist mode, even as the particulars of intention and expression are distinct and individual. [...] How inspiring and heartening it is to read their daring attempts to do something entirely new with language, undertaken both in seriousness and wild play." --Bookslut

"Co-editors Hass (a former U.S. Poet Laureate) and Ebenkamp have produced that rare, valuable thing: a volume that could be at once a resource for educators, and a fine entree for the general reader." -- Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

[Praise for Robert Hass]
"[Robert] Hass has significantly broadened the role of poet laureate to include not only his love for poetry but also his concern for literacy and his passion for environmentalism."--Los Angeles Times

"No Practicing poet has more talent than Robert Hass."--The Atlantic Monthly
