“Her poetry is her sensibility, reduced and refined to an essence…meant to be lingered over line by line rather than read quickly.”
Available in both print and digital formats.
Suzanne E. Berger teaches advanced students in poetry at the Lesley Seminars at Lesley University. She has two books of poetry, These Rooms (Penmaen Press, 1979) and Legacies (Alice James Books, 1984) and a book of nonfiction, Horizontal Woman (Houghton Mifflin, 1997). Her work has also appeared in Ploughshares, The New Yorker, AGNI, Harvard Review, and elsewhere, and she has received a Pushcart Prize and a grant from the Somerville (Mass.) Arts Council.
“Suzanne E. Berger’s new work displays a mature talent. She is at her lyrical best in poems, that express feelings we all share, but, in so doing, they carry us off to new destinations. Her deft use of myth and dream deserve our attention.”
“Her prosody is so tuneful that it serves to balance her recurrent perception that life is dangerous and lonely. Berger convinces us that there is consolation to be found in acknowledging our uniquely bleak cosmic situation and responding to it with loving imagination, no matter how bizarre that exercise may appear.”
