“Truth sat for her drawing”

Praise for Sarah Plimpton

“As quiet as a moment just before sleep, Sarah Plimpton’s poems are like preludes to dreams. The ‘everyday’ happens daily, but it is also rare and precious in Ms. Plimpton’s transparent telling.” —John Ashbery

“Burnished and elemental, Sarah Plimpton’s sinewy poems open vistas of experience and sensation in astonishingly few words.” —Rachel Hadas

Reviews / Endorsements

“Sarah Plimpton has illustrated her Collected Poems with black on white and white on black drawings of seemingly absolute simplicity. I don’t know how many days it’s been since the creation, but Plimpton’s drawings give us a hint.” —Stanley Moss
