"Very informative and eye opening."

Southern Maine Library District, May 11, 2011

"Houle’s research is excellent and her choice of poems is diverse and sure to please. Not only does she present a detailed explanation of each poem, but she also provides discussion questions for the classroom teacher or for the leader of a book group . . . Wonderful choice for reference, research or pleasure reading for the high school or college library as well as for the public library."
