“born a poet”

Praise for Aliki Barnstone

“All of a sudden I understand why I like Aliki Barnstone’s poems so much. They remind me of the one she has studied most—shall we call her master—that Emily Dickinson! Not in the forms, not, as such, in the music, and not in the references; but in that weird intimacy, that eerie closeness, that absolute confession of soul. She has the rare art of distance and closeness. It gives her fine music, her wisdom, her form. She is a fine poet.” —Gerald Stern

“For Aliki Barnstone, poetry seems a natural medium. The vision and cadences of these poems suggest a sensibility for which poetry is as inevitable as breathing or eating.” —Robert Pinsky

ALIKI BARNSTONE’S eight books of poetry include Bright Body and Dear God, Dear Dr. Heartbreak: New and Selected Poems (Sheep Meadow, 2009). The translator of The Collected Poems of C.P. Cavafy, she is Professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Missouri.
