"Bloom's synthesis of contradictory passions into graceful poetics connects Permiso to writing by Adrienne Rich ( Dark Fields of the Republic), Anne Carson ( The Beauty of the Husband), Esta Spalding ( The Wife's Account). Thinkers, feelers, in conversation with the music of language, building on the gift of accepting almost any sound -- in this case any subject matter -- as permissible textures for honest poems. "Meg Walker, The Globe & Mail
