Reviews
Susan Terris's poetry is exquisite and extraordinary. Her poems exhibit an intellectual verve and a linguistic brilliance that are remarkable. There are few poets who can so deftly orchestrate the dramatic dilemmas of the daily with the profound wisdoms of the larger world.
-David St. John
There seems to be no limit to the range of experience and empathy in the farreaching poems of Susan Terris. Out of a life passionately lived and remembered, she has constructed a bold map for survival and self-understanding. Her wisdom, dazzle of language, imaginative exploration of time and nature, and amazing appetite for risk and "dark surprise" make CONTRARIWISE a book to treasure.
-Shirley Kaufman
These poems are our fondest human wishes and hopes given voice. They report the world's abundance and richness even amid loss and pain.
-Li-Young Lee
