“Fanny Howe employs a sometimes fierce, always passionate, spareness in her lifelong parsing of the exchange between matter and spirit.” (Michael Palmer)
“With extraordinary self-scrutiny and complexity―and unmatchable musical poise and beauty―Fanny Howe examines our relationship with ‘other’ worlds, purgatories of various kinds: genetic, historical, theological.” (Rae Armantrout)
