Mona Van Duyn's Near Changes is a valuable addition to contemporary American poetry. This work provides a variety of riches surpassing even that of her earlier work. For wit, inventiveness, true feeling and a sharp eye for the passing scene, there is no one better than she.

From the Back Cover:

"Mona Van Duyn gas a gift for making the ordinary appear strange and for turning a common situation into a metaphysical exploration . . . Near Changes is a major addition to the corpus of her work."
--Edward Hirsch, The New York Times

"It is not only that the best of her poems teach us so much about life, but that life, over a long time, teaches us the truth of these poems."
--Howard Nemerov

"Since 1959 Mona Van Duyn has been writing poetry notable for its formal accomplishment and for its thematic ambition. The searching intelligence of the persona we have learned to know in her poems, combined with the humor, technical ease, and the blend of the abstract and the quotidian that the poet has made her own have resulted in that rare good thing: a strong clear voice, original without eccentricity."
--Cynthia Zarin, The New Republic
