"...This time, and in a very different place, the poet ventures upon a much more perilous dig, framing an archeology of the self which requires not only testimony but evidence, not only comment but construction. She disinters along 'boundaries of pain' which Dickinson, her surest mentor, identifies as 'capacious as the sea.' Great accuracy and great tenacity were required to write these poems,in which a significant amount of going under is...undergone. Readers, as well as the writer, must 'in the destructive element immerse'; but by trusting Lesser's method (relentless questioning, dogged reversion to the charge, ironic skepticism as the prolegomenon to any future therapeutics) even as she follows her great predecessor in evidential texts, we ascend with her into radiance..."-Richard Howard on Rika Lesser's work
