Rose Drachler

“Rose Drachler’s first published poems appeared when she was in her fifties. She is such a remarkable poet that it makes me wonder why all poets don’t wait until they’re fifty. Her work contains the lucid simplicity of a parable—if it’s well told—easily leads you into (and through) familiar realms only to deposit you at the edge of a great mystery. Her rigorously crafted work is layered in what is sacred and transformational. Her poetry welcomes the immediate world with wisdom and tenacity; it is a marvelous decoding of appearances that illuminates the very heart of our awareness.”
– Gregory Kolovakos (in presenting The American Book Award 1981 on behalf of The Before Columbus Foundation)

“So her book — like all poem-books since Whitman brought the message home—is the life, the song of herself created in the work. “My own,” she says, “I do not conceal/ Or deny what I am”: a Jewish woman into her late 60s: who has been (for how long?) like those secret wise men in each generation, one of the 36 poets whose work stays hidden in the world.”
– Jerome Rothenberg
