"Her lyrics are clear-sighted and yet full of tenderness for their subjects. The lines of her poems, spare and beautiful, create 'a procession of figures' that lingers and echoes afterward in the reader's memory." -- Eric Ormsby
"My favorite poems of hers are the ones that resuscitate ancestors. They all return to us through the lifeline of Shenfeld's revelatory language." -- Kenneth Sherman
