About A Palace of Pearls:

"Book by book, Jane Miller has evolved a mode, a voice, a palette and landscape entirely her own. If she were a painter, one might describe it as a descendant of cubism, a composition of multiple planes and reflections that appears to emerge out of itself, true to laws of its own nature, and yet is disturbingly recognizable, continuously suggestive, intimate and beautiful. Her subject is love and illusion and their revelation about each other."
—W. S. Merwin

"Itís heartening to see a poet work from the pure energy of language, without apology, as Jane Miller does."
Boston Book Review
