“Linda Zisquit’s work is uniquely present, yet timeless. Its clarity has no equal.”
“Exact and delicate and strong, like lace. Soft and sensuous and yet powerful as a machine.”
“Linda Zisquit is a lyric poet, a warrior fully armed with a phalanx of traditional, high-minded beliefs. Still, it is her demons that her poetry best serves. Often, she joins the battalions she fights against and sings.”
