"One of the finest poets around.... Eggs in the Lake overflows with poetic vision, but nothing is ever pretentious or done for effect." -- Nona Balakian, Former staff reviewer:The New York Times, author Critical Encounters

"visionary and powerful. With tremendous vitality.... Gioseffi is a gifted , graceful and moving writer." -- Galway Kinnell, National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize Poet, New York University

"A pleasure to read. Gioseffi's work is brilliant, compassionate, timely."--D. Nurkse

In the shadow of world violence, she calls for the redeeming power of love, mother love, community love, erotic love, 'while chairs of state arrange themselves in isms of death'"--Donna Masini, Creative Writing Professor, Poet, Hunter College, CUNY.

" In Word Wounds ... she wounds and seduces to litanize and heal.... The work's been described as 'mythopoeic, visionary, healing original and irrisistible." -- William Allen, Chelsea

"Gioseffi celebrates and laments her life and heritage with a voice, breath, and scope that might be likened to Allen Ginsberg." -- American Book Review

"Gioseffi is one of the school of strong epic poets. Few women take on the page like a Ginsberg, a Baraka or a Whitman... In Word Wounds and Water Flowers, sometimes her voice is full volume, full tilt, strapping, vigorous, then it reels with tenderness...." -- Grace Cavalieri, Poet Lore, Host of N.P.R.'s The Poet & The Poem

"A vital international author, dedicated to planetary survival." -- Cecilia Ceriani, El Pais

"Anyone who thinks that a poet cannot write about important, serious contemporary subjects without the burden of rhetoric should take a lesson from Daniela Gioseffi." -- Philip Appleman, Confrontation.

"A brilliant heart full of outrage and wisdom. Like Muriela Rukeyser, she is one of Whitman's daughters. Very original poetry--Milton Kessler, poet/edtior Choice. Professor of Writing, Binghamton, SUNY
