Reviews

For nearly thirty years, Howe has occupied a particular and invaluable place in American poetry. She's a rigorously skeptical and a profoundly visionary poet, a writer whose demystifying intelligence is matched by a passionate embrace of poetry's rejuvenating power.--John Palattella
No other poet now writing has Howe's power to bring together narrative and lyric, scholarship and historical speculation, found text and pure invention.--Marjorie Perloff
Howe's words give the impression of echoing another, hidden poetry of which we catch only fragments, like an opera sung in another room--except that the other room is death, or history, or the ineffable.--Geoffrey O'Brien
Over the past three decades Howe has worked as a kind of poet-scholar manqué, mixing into her books prose explorations of early American spiritual and historical chroniclers and her own distinctive poems, usually terse, four-stress snippets that themselves seem like fugitive fragments from a larger suppressed text.
