  • Roripaugh seems just as capable of taking the actual world apart and reordering it in stunning ways as she does words, concepts, and emotions These poems absolutely dance around attempts to follow, but somehow never lose the reader It s baffling, but also amazing Intelligent, inventive, elegant, wily, and marvelous The worlds are so vivid and strange yet so compellingly home, malevolently alien yet tenderly attractive This is some highly impressive writing.


  • I like the elements of color and light throughout these And especially the insomnial Sleepless Gra ti and Ten Nights Dreams Read on the booklog


  • Playful and haunting, these poems broke my heart and assembled it over and over again I love the new meanings found in words the author s mother pronounces my favorite is maybe DISASTER and DEE ASTER Beautiful collection.


  • Lyric essays Prose Poems The very nature of hybridization, of neither nor ness and how language both creates that sensibility and cures it, is at the heart of these compelling pieces.


  • No one makes and fresh and apt metaphors than Lee Ann Roripaugh, and this is abundantly apparent in her most recent collection, Dandarians Roripaugh consistently evinces a Keatsian lyricism wed to the most sensitively attuned of contemporary sensibilities If you want to know what is going on in contemporary poetry, and why it is important, there is no better place to start than this book.


  • I am dazzled with Dandarians, The Lickety split between Worlds where poetic word play and offset imagery takes readers to soaring perspective then suddenly landing sometimes with a laugh into the mundane Subtext of word play, interpreted by a child smarter than the adults around her this is a book filled with whip like wallop ing words
