"...It's a beautiful book...but also an extraordinary one, the way it hangs together as a commentary on the Aeneid, a reflection of and on our times, and a sort of mini-epic of its own - a Camelliad. And I always love hearing Rachel's distinctive voice come through, with the casual dropping of allusions, the registers ("zany"), the wit and learnedness."
"At a moment when ignorance, stupidity, and a dogged refusal to learn from the past are rampant, how salutary to read a very contemporary poet in dialogue with Virgil about such timeless and pertinenet issues as war, continuity, guilt, grief, and consolation."
