About The Girl with Bees in Her Hair:

"Wilner... has a deep and heroic belief in the transformative power of language and myth. She paddles her surfboard outside the reef where most poets stop; she rides the big waves."
—Tony Hoagland

"I have always treasured Wilner's poetry for its visionary amplitude and revolutionary intelligence."
—Alicia Ostriker

"It is a relief to come across work in which a moral intelligence is matched by aesthetic refinement, in which the craft of the poems is equal to their concerns."
