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.

Village Voice Literary Supplement

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, The Washington Post

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.

—*Publishers Weekly *

One of the most vitally innovative of contemporary poets.

World Literature Today

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.

—The American Poetry Review
