About A Report from the Border:

"Anne Stevenson is at her most original when she explores states of consciousness...which involve the perplexing ways that mind and body interact. Inventive and demanding, she is never abstruse, as she tests out philosophical abstractions on her herself in daily situations"
—John Taylor, Poetry (Chicago)

"One of the most intelligent, assured, vivid and skilful poets writing today"
—Gerard Woodward, Times Literary Suppliment
