A Hand of Stars
by Barbara F. Lefcowitz
“At this point in my writing and reading life, I prefer clarity, conciseness, concrete language and sharp images, and at least an indirect suggestion of a particular point rather than mere word painting. I also value the meld of science and poetry, history and poetry. Which is another way of saying I am no longer interested in confessional poetry that does not reach beyond a person’s broken love affair or neurotic tics. And I adhere to the perhaps outdated belief that poetry must be musical but without labored rhythms and rhymes.”
– Barbara Lefcowitz
“Wise, witty, dramatic, and daring.”
– The Washington Review.
“She is a poet of daring and tough charm.” – Library Journal.
