Editorial Reviews

"Crossing Color: Transcultural Space and Place in Rita Dove's Poetry, Fiction, and Drama is Therese Seffren's testament to this writer's "crossover" ability. Dove's crossings include those of color, gender, culture, continental boundaries, and genres. . . . Noteworthy is the study of Throughthe Ivory Gate as a work of "artistic enspacement" drawing on Greek tragedy for its modes of simultaneity and reversibility."--American Literary Scholarship
