Reviews / Endorsements

“The problem that Macari sets herself is how to mediate the mythical persona with the familiar voice. Self-authorization can be a continually foreshortened labor, but it is labor nonetheless. It is also a task worth engaging, and with her new collection she seems, as Louise Gluck once slyly remarked about her bardic self, poised to write ‘the great poems of her middle period.’”—David Rigsbee, The Cortland Review

“Whether it is within the context of homo sapiens’ tragic evolution into our place of dominion over the earth that we have so profoundly abused, or our expulsion from the mythic garden, Anne Marie Macari goes way beyond bemoaning our collective lack of grace, or participating in fancy theorizing: This is a book of informed and original intellectual engagement with the world’s many layers, and of complex spiritual response—but most importantly it is a book driven by blind love for the world we are both a part of, and apart from.”—Jane Mead
