More Information

A wonderful mix of philosophical conversation, erotic questions and astrophysical speculation—defiantly brilliant speculations.

Publishers Weekly

A page of Waldrop will focus the reader on the intricate (or simple) ways words connect or fail to connect, depend on or defy punctuation, suggest or deny meaning.

The American Book Review

Nearly fifty years of lyric riffs, meditations, and collages…seek to simultaneously define, deconstruct, and, finally, re-construct a mind in motion.

Music & Literature

[Waldrop] maintains a distinctly American voice—quick-witted, conversational, and visually concrete: a poetry that pleases no less than it puzzles.

Voice Literary Supplement

One of the leading voices in contemporary American poetry.

Boston Review

Waldrop compels us to seek out new superlatives.

—Ben Lerner

Rosmarie Waldrop should be recognized as a national treasure.

The Providence Journal

[Roger] Williams’s A Key into the Language of America was the first extensive vocabulary and study of an Indian language printed in English. Waldrop’s Key is a return and a reinscription. She…intersplices, turns, overturns, plots, weaves and threads, line for line, at least three structural system…Waldrop’s A Key is a witty, and deeply moving, translation of sexual and textual division and witness.
