"In this attractive anthology, Tern discloses a powerful and grand spirit, whether addressing her mother, her eagle, her rivers, or her dead brother; the idiom varies from the freedoms of early modernism to formal sonnets to the 'old woman's toys' of her final tercets, but the feelings are always dense with loved objects and local solicitude."--Richard Howard
"Above all, the poetry of Ana Enriqueta Tern transmits movement and contrasting sound patterns. In his dynamic and often inspired translations, Marcel Smith recovers for us the sprung rhythms and eccentric visual shifts in Tern's poetry. Smith has taken the risky step of translating and transforming to capture an extraordinarily complex and dense poetry, one with few equivalents even in Spanish."--Gwen Kirkpatrick, University of California, Berkeley

He has published translations of Spanish poems in a number of journals. This is his first book.
"Startlingly vivid and technically masterful poems, whose range and complexity [have] few equals... [A] fiercely intimate journey contained in a slim but thoughtful volume."--Christine Thomas, American Book Review "The Poetess Counts to 100 and Bows Out ... is a demanding selection of poems interweaving fables, myths, dreams, bold similes, and heightened visions of reality in order to interpret and commemorate what often nonetheless seem to be personal experiences. It is a sometimes puzzling yet also singularly sensual and resonant mixture, especially in the many cases where poems exhibit a semantically rich, philosophically ambitious, extremely compact lyricism."--John Taylor, Antioch Review
