Poet, editor, small press pioneer, and devoted friend of literature, Glenna Luschei tells the truth and never denies her own voice. It would be hard to imagine a poet more appreciated by other poets than Glenna Luschei.From hearing you read your poems, what I remember now is their unusually strong emotional effect, with many lines still sounding in my ear for days afterward, and images that remain extraordinarily vivid. Your work is warm, compassionate, and rooted in our common humanness, but lighted with gleams from the far reaches of inner and outer space.--Frank Waters (1972)I am moved by Glenna Luscheis bold, painterly glimpses of vibrant life.--Carol Muske DukesThese poems are on the other side of despair. They see through their occasions, even the sad ones, toward what is precious in the life one is given.--Gene FrumkinAt the heart of Glenna Luscheis poetry is . . . a fierce love, the kind that keeps us always connected to those with whom we travel, albeit all too briefly, through this life, the kind that tenaciously embraces every memory and dream. . . . For some forty years, she has published honest poems rich in intimacy and passion that manage to balance love and loss, fulfillment and despair, mourning and reconciliation--the hearts inseparable pairs.--Steven Shur
