Reviews

"Caryn Miriam Goldberg gives voice to what can't be put into words, she sets us free of old paradigms, she writes like a dream.” -- Julia Alvarez, author, In the Time of the Butterflies 

"Caryn's poems are silver threads that weave through the darkening sky and gates and light unspooling from the heart’s loom a dream of joy and ancestral echoes." -- Jimmy Santiago Baca, author, A Place to Stand

"Poem on the Range is a needed guide for all those who work for the arts. It’s a gift to all who glory in a place they’ve made home." -- Dick Allen, Connecticut State Poet Laureate, 2010-2015

"Many thanks to Caryn for these beautiful lessons in living, really living from a poet laureate who reminds you of your best friend. It's wonderful to feel so deeply inspired by a world that feels so deeply familiar." -- Dar Williams, Singer-songwriter

“How any of us weather the darkening climate of these times is a wonder; it is such poetry as this that help us breathe." -- David Abram, author, The Spell of the Sensuous

"Mirriam-Goldberg is a master of the paradoxical as she gifts the reader with insights that are at once disconcerting and comforting; as she holds joy and grief in the same hand, and asks us to trust the maker of these poems—her courage, her wisdom, and her truthtelling, as if she's lived infinity." -- Maureen Seaton, author, Sex Talks to Girls: A Memoir

"Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg is a wise, witty, and wry poet." -- Alicia Ostriker, author, The Little Space
