TALK

Rae: lexical powerhouse. Rae: scientist of intimacies. The words burst as though the poet could not contain them. –Thylias Moss

The poems are so deft, rich, attentive that they charm me from the outset. –Maxine Kumin

Her sentences are masterful acts of control, acts of emotional registry. Her scoring of the page is subtle, her aim laudatory, her results fresh; she makes a reader pay attention. –Dave Smith

Hers is a new music, indeed a new order of language altogether. –Richard Howard
