Chimney Rock What the Critics Say
About Susan Strayer




It's a passionate voice, haunting, full of awe and wonder for the land and living things and the processes of living, even when the subject is death or loss. And so the poems are passionate and richly sensual, full of scents and flavors, textures and movements, colors and shapes, sounds and silences. I am always tempted to call them both erotic and mystical because they are so sensual and because the land and living things and objects they evoike are imbued with such aliveness. What they are, however, are the accurate recordings of the perceptions of a poet who knows how to see exactly and thoroughly, with all the senses and with humility and love. — Maria Mullinaux Lemon
