Love Like a Conflagration


There is not a poem in this remarkable book that will leave you unchanged or be forgotten … Each of these poems is as permanently current as it is consummate. [Greer] puts on the page the passion long absent from American poetry. I’ve never read a book as poetically and beautifully frank as this. —Samuel Hazo, past poet laureate of Pennsylvania

Jane Greer’s poetry is intelligent, profound, and tough, something like an avenging angel … Technically sound and unsparingly sharp, she helps mark a new age in Catholic letters.—James Matthew Wilson, poetry editor, Modern Age

These poems are works of art … meant to be understood and to be appreciated for their precise and varied and exquisite music. —Anthony Esolen, translator, The Modern Library Divine Comedy
