"There is surely an inquisitive nowness in her timeless poems, a willingness to engage with Guy Debord's spectacle or to completely ignore it, and a thrilling ability to transport William Carlos Williams's iconic red wheelbarrow into an uninhibited, semantic, seismic, motionless playground."--David Moscovich, Rain Taxi, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"If Armantrout shows a new attention to aging and death in the COVID era, her aim is to gain insight and epiphany through the kind of astringent, epistemological estrangements that her work has long mastered. While death is a central theme in this work, Finalists emanates the radiant astonishment of living thought."--David Woo, The Poetry Foundation, reviewing a previous edition or volume

"Call it modernism, postmodernism, constructivism, avant-garde, or a mix. What we encounter are minimalistic, fragmentary structures that make the whole by breaking the whole."--Grace Cavalieri, Washington Independent Review of Books, reviewing a previous edition or volume
