Lynne Knight

...her measured and lyrical voice reveals desire and memory as physical presences...
- Rattle

...sensuous, attentive, intelligent, and ruthlessly honest...
- Laure-Anne Bosselaar

Lynne Knight writes about fear and loss with breathtaking courage, finding temporary glimmers of light even in the midst of heartbreaking and inevitable darkness.
- Elizabeth Rosner

Her poems are luminous and musical... She plumbs the depths of grief and joy...
- Grace Schulman

In poems fueled by a combination of passion and panic, Knight disarms us only to expand our vision.
