MEDIA REVIEWS

"For anyone who loves Emily Dickinson (anyone who would admit to not loving her is, frankly, someone not worth knowing), this is an invaluable collection. Not because it containts the best poems from the poets included-- it doesn't--and not because the poems shed more light on Emily, her life, or her work--that's not their purpose--but rather for the joy of joining with these poets in a celebration of words that wildly gyre around and around that immovable, inscrutable, awesome Mystery at the very center of it all: Emily Dickinson."--David M. Perkins, "Bloomsbury Review"
