Praise for Suzanne Burns and Blight

"Suzanne Burns writes with an effervescent mix of earth, flowers, sensuality and the pulse of the country: these poems are alive, kicking and unquiet."
—Marilyn Bowering, author of Visible Worlds (Harper Collins), Human Bodies (Canadian Classic Series)

"Suzanne Burns is a poet of the world, or Oregon forest, headlines and daily life, but always these poems are carried along by a luminous, primal intensity. A lyric poet, her poems begin in a place where many poems end, a place where language gives way to explosive, crackling music."
—Richard Garcia, author of The Flying Garcias (University of Pittsburgh Press), My Aunt Otilia’s Spirit (Fifth World Tales
