The voice [in Anele Rubins poems] is so new, and yet the movement is so artful, subtle, and modestthere are never any theatrics in these poems. They never yowl, Pay attention to me! . . . Rubin is on the same wave-length with Tomas Tranströmer and Yehuda Amichai. . . . The emotional range of her poems, like theirs, is enormous, as is the range of locales, many of which I know well, and yet in Trying to Speak, they appear with a clarity that had eluded me. Philip Levine, Judge
Anele Rubins poems illuminate an astonishing range of emotional experience. Visual, tactile, simple and complex, her words lure you from poem to poemsometimes exquisite, sometimes austere, always original. Ruth Stone
This is a powerful and beautifully lyrical book of great wisdom, whose theme is emotional resurrection. Toi Derricotte
