Reviews

"[Love and I] hurries to join a long and illustrious career, which, besides poetry, includes novels, stories, memoir, and short films. . . . Howe prefers the clarity of misunderstanding to the blur of certainty. Like stained glass, her poems await illumination, but it is important not to flood them with a klieg light. . . . It is marvelous to think of these works as having been made not in some bower but in the midst of life."--The New Yorker

"In Love and I, Howe leaves readers with a sense that much is left to be explored, not only in her poems but in the world outside our own associations. . . . In the wilds of associations that Howe produces, readers are sure to find both niches of rest and, simultaneously, calls to action. But perhaps our only responsibility is to wander."--Ploughshares

"[Love and I is] Howe at her fierce best; and in the reading, you may be dazzled, like the first time you found poetry."--Washington Independent Review of Books

"Love and I is a meander through a singular mind. . . . Howe's inquisitiveness, generosity, and care are easy to appreciate and impossible to resist."--ZYZZYVA

"Readers ready to suspend expectations about what and how poems mean will delight in the transformations happening in these pages."--Publishers Weekly

"In nearly every poem, the poet delves deeply. Her questing invites us to read and reread. For all academic and larger public library collections."--Library Journal
