Reviews / Endorsements

“In Miraculum, her stunning and vital fifth collection, Ruth L. Schwartz writes with thoughtful precision and praise of the wounded. These poems have a way of reaching into a moment and pulling it inside out, of illuminating the body and its hungers. Schwartz obsesses over issues such as what is this body? Does it contain us? Is there a part of us living outside of ourselves? In poems both lyrical and miraculous, she grapples with her central question: ‘Can this grief love itself / into something else?’”—The Fourth River

“Ruth L. Schwartz has reached a level of poetic maturity that we're used to seeing only in the best of our American poetry... reaching after and trying to understand the natural world and her place therein, and modulating her poems with a subtle, ghostly music which has the capacity to lull us into understanding more about ourselves and about the wonderful ambiguities of living life most fully.”—Bruce Weigl
