Reviews / Endorsements

Dialogue with the Archipelago is full of private mythology Suzanne Gardinier grafts on to matters modern, Biblical, and ancient. She has invented a line appropriate to her poetry ruled by a two-faced moon that keeps and holds every word precious and resonant, broad enough to hold the surf of history crashing with an emotional sweep, depth and beauty few contemporary poets can provide. Of course, her moon makes for breakers mysteriously regular and irregular. Of course, Suzanne Gardinier’s mind to her ‘a kingdom is.’”—Stanley Moss

“Gardinier is above all a poet whose language and images are completely integrated so that, in Keats’s words, every rift is laden with ore.”—Adrienne Rich

SUZANNE GARDINER is the author of Today: 101 Ghazals (Sheep Meadow Press, 2008); the long poem The New World (1993), chosen by Lucille Clifton as winner of the Associated Writing Program’s Award Series in poetry in 1992; and A World That Will Hold All the People (1996), essays on poetry and politics.
