“I think [her] poems are wonderfully thoughtful, and clear, and frank. What's more, she has a unique story to tell--the imposition upon childhood of organized religion. Poems are a kind of theatre, and Beck manages her dramas with the light, sure touch required to turn experience into art. This is fascinating work." -
“What I enjoy most about ‘What If the Angel Warned’ is its strangeness, its tone of postlapsarian foreboding, and the dramatic tension between the poem’s double voices, neither of which seems to listen to the other. It’s difficult to bring to life a subject as hackneyed as the Fall, and the poet who wrote ‘What If the Angel Warned’ does so with originality and—more importantly—a supple and finely measured sense of the poetic line” -Brian Brodeur
