About Wrens Fly Through This Opened Window:

"One of the most powerful and influential American poets."
Washington Post Book World

"Norman Dubie's poems have always been generous and inclusive, capable of containing multiple and conflicting worlds--of memory and the present, of the artistic and the daily."
The Washington Post

"Dubie's poems are works of great beauty, even when they deal with harsh realities."
National Poetry Review

"Dubie's dramatic poetry seeks to represent our deepest moments of perception, struggle, and revelation. Out of his voice comes the voice of multitudes. Yet his achievement and vision are singular."
American Book Review

"Dubie's poetry...is a brave vision of other worlds where human frailty and strength fuse to create a writing unlike any other in American poetry."
Bloomsberry Review
