“The marvelous specificities of her poems demonstrate a fierce and admirable passion … with a steadfast gaze at the natural world as intense and perfectly rendered as that of Rilke’s panther.” Publishers Weekly

“Fogel demonstrates a fine sense of stanza — an understanding of poetic closure and dramatic timing far beyond that of most free-verse poets…. ‘Ravishing perception’ seems to pervade Fogel’s work … both elegantly and powerfully…. One can see the dance of intellect from word to word [as she] dramatize[s] the complexities of consciousness.” —Alan Michael Parker, Chelsea Magazine

“Fogel is a poet alert to every nuance of the inner life, a true phenomenologist of the soul in that New England tradition to which both Emily Dickinson and Jane Kenyon belong. She is one of the best poets we have.”—Charles Simic

“[Fogel’s work] twines the themes of complicated subjects, often in mesmerizing form.”—Robert Hass, Washington Post
