The Lime Orchard Woman

The Sheep Meadow Press • 1988

“Here the cerebral and the earthy are vividly combined, and the resulting tension between reality and fantasy yields fresh and often powerful imagery. Deeply rooted in the physical, these poems posit sensuous experience, a strain of music, a kiss, the maturation of a woman's body as the soil from which abstractions about human nature and existence might grow…If one wishes for more intellectual depth, the raw power of the imagery lends the verses an almost surrealistic quality, enhanced by the richness of language and the originality of vision.” — Publishers Weekly
