      "A wildly gifted poet. . . . Garrigue was our one lyric poet who made
        ecstasy her home." --Stanley Kunitz
       "Her way with language was Mozartian, breathtaking in its ability to
        ring change after change on a theme, Mozartian bursts of language, never
        leaving the subject, enabling the eye to see clearly, while delighting
        the ear with sound." --Harvey Shapiro
      "A brilliant poet. Her idiom is modern, yet has a kind of Book of Hours
        simplicity." -- Robert Lowell
