Editorial Reviews

"Jane Springer's poetry, anthologized in the pages of Dear Blackbird, ...documents her impressive flair for free verse lyrics that are not restricted to the boundaries of ordinary stanza sequences of formats but are as original in their composition as they are in the content. Lovers of language and appreciators of poetry will enjoy the originality and engagement of Springer's deftly crafted verse."—The Midwest Book Review
