About How Else To Love the World:

"... the reader is increasingly aware of falling under the spell of a poet whose relationship with the world is passionate, even romantic—lover and beloved-and whose Way With Ianguage is sensuous, often erotic, and palpably physical."
—B. H. Fairchild

"Reading Stone, I think of John Donne. Like him, she delights in wit and desire and the sweet coupling of word and word."
—Elton Glaser

"Through formal gestures and Voluptuous Myrna Stone praises the pleasures of the world, whether they arise from 'the body's ambition' or from the mind aroused by discipline and art. How Else to Love the World is a book of fierce and passionate."
—Michael Waters
