From Booklist:

Here is real poetic authority, singular, sure, strong. The subject matter does not differ much from that of most contemporary poets, save that Rumens brings political consciousness into almost every line. Her voice is colloquial and clear, never overwrought; her settings, often commonplace, are easily recognizable; and her images grow appropriately from the content. What distinguishes Rumens from other, simply competent poets is the unyielding brilliance--a graven quality, an unalterable rightness of expression--of her every line and the certainty in her every phrase. This book collects from her eight previous books as well as presents recent work written since she moved to Belfast. An exciting, inspiring poet. Pat Monaghan
