What People are Saying About This

James Merrill
“Rika Lesser, through these somberly glowing meditations, has brought a whole world—its gods, artifacts, plunderers—to language and to life.”
Richard Howard
“We discover the dire, fastidious significance of Rika Lesser’s poems, which are of course a meditation on what happens to the open secret of her life, what becomes of now; we discover, in so many Etruscan things taken out of their Etruscan places, that the past pollutes AND saves.”
