Ellen Bass: "Bass shows us that we are as radiant as we are ephemeral, that in transience glistens resilient history and the remarkable fluidity of connection. Following her musings on suicide and generosity, desire and repetitionit becomes lucidly clear that Bass is not only a poet but also a philosopher and a storyteller." Briana Shemroske, Booklist

Jane Hirshfield: "Jane Hirshfield, in poems described by The Washington Post as belonging among the modern masters and by The New York Times as passionate and radiant, addresses the urgent immediacies of our time. Ranging from the political, ecological, and scientific to the metaphysical, personal, and passionate, Hirshfield praises the radiance of particularity and the consequence of the daily. Her poems and essays traverse the crises of the biosphere and social justice, abiding in the intersections of facts and imagination, desire and loss, impermanence and beauty - all the dimensions of our existence within what one poem calls 'the pure democracy of being.'"

Marie Howe: "Marie Howe's poetry is luminous, intense, and eloquent, rooted in an abundant inner life. Her long, deep-breathing lines address the mysteries of flesh and spirit, in terms accessible only to a woman who is very much of our time and yet still in touch with the sacred." Stanley Kunitz

Kim Rosen: on behalf of the S.H.E. College Fund

SAFE HOUSE EDUCATION (S.H.E.) FUND provides girls of the V-Day Safe House in Narok, Kenya with college, university or trade school education in order to support these young women to become change makers in their communities and stop the cycles of oppression (Female Genital Mutilation, Early Childhood Marriage and the refusal to educate females) in their culture and our planet.
