“Alison Koffler’s is a poetry not only of
honed, pure looking, which is impressive enough, but of really seeing,
which is even more so. Koffler has, as Albert Schweitzer urged, ‘extend(ed) the
circle of compassion to all living things,’ and what results is such powerful
poetry: Humor, music, astuteness, imagination, and compassion are here in
equal, glorious measure”.
