"When Miss Brooks...writes out of her heart, out of her rich and living background, out of her very real talent, then she induces almost unbearable excitement." -- New York Times
"From her poet's craft bursts a whole gallery of wholly alive persons...Many a novelist cannot do so well in ten times the space." -- Christian Science Monitor
"She is a very good poet, the only superlative I dare use in our time of misusage; compared...to the best of modern poets, she ranks high." -- Harvey Curtis Webster
