A touchstone, a maintainer for our generation. She was a constantly defining presence in the world we shared, a remarkable and transforming poet for all of us.--Robert Creeley
Levertov's mastery - more than mastery, because she is one of the originators - of contemporary poetic form, informed with a fierce, generous intelligence, can be frightening.--Ursula Le Guin
Levertov's gift for details is matched by the way she can make yearnings and ideas seem almost physical, as if she had them in the palm of her hand.
A purely numinous and transcendent poetry where subject and object seem one and divinely inspired. Long recognized as one of our best and most influential poets, Levertov is nonetheless seriously undervalued.
Denise Levertov was musical, fierce, absolute in her honesty and, for us, her public, as indispensable as any modern poet. To young writers asking for direction, Denise Levertov's name comes to my tongue, always, among the very first of our important forebears. Her work was, and is, a brave gift to us all.--Mary Oliver
One of the most vitally innovative of contemporary poets.
Book by book, I have read her poems for their subtle music, for their imagination, for their author's dignity and integrity and grace; and most of all, for the indomitable and humble spirit that hungers there.
In every era there are just a few poets whose work - for its sheer lyric conscience - carries poetry safely into the future. Denise Levertov, as this books shows, is one of them.--Eavan Boland
