"Her poems yield a humanly political veracity which does not accede to cynicism, but seem to have witnessed with a clear gaze what had befallen her country, its people....She writes from a religious soul and the sustaining elements of her poems arise from ritual and humility, from tenacious, mindful suffering, and deeply held religious practices and belief. Her voice is impetuous and full of a rushing audacity that can stab the consciousness by suddenly becoming stark and acute". -- Tess Gallagher
