Reviews

"[Melissa Stein's] sentences are beautifully choreographed; they start and stop the motion of her poems with a nearly invisible, effortless authority."-- Mark Doty

"So many of the striking (and bee-haunted) images in Melissa Stein's fine first book, Rough Honey, ultimately reflect on the honey of words... Here Ms. Stein reminds us that there is no honey -- rough, or otherwise -- without the sting." --The New York Times

"[Melissa Stein's] electric apprehensions throb with this nearly preverbal knowing. They are rough as a hound's tongue; they are honey itself... Stein is a new poet of the first order." --Molly Peacock
