Bauer’s poems probe the dark landscapes between impression and apprehension, the past, and its repetition through imaginative transformation, impulse, and restraint. Her delivery is tough and terse; her imagery is fresh and often startling. Her poems are poignant, intelligent, and believable.

“. . . . Bauer transforms the mundane, carrying you off to the mystical moment, and then gently returning you to the here and now, but changed.”    —Erika Butler, The Café Review

“Anne Sexton, Elizabeth Bishop, Carolyn Kizer—let them make room for Grace Bauer. Sexton’s equal in sardonic vision, Bishop’s equal in the music of speech, Kizer’s equal in rapier wit . . . . I, for one, will try to read every word this woman writes.”    —Will Slattery
