X-ing the Acheron
"Julia Connor's poems are spare and elliptical but straight to the heart of things. I admire (in the words of one of the poems) their stark elegance." --Dennis Schmitz
"Connor is nimble, her writing rich and nubby."
"I have admired the singular lyricism and highly engaged 'ear' of her craft...a poet of the first order. "

A Canto for the Birds
"One feels the refined precision of poems in the "Greek Anthology"; there are few poems flowing with this grace and forthrightness."
The Delta Poem
" A thoughtful and precise work of poetry and history, eloquently crafted, woven with subtle intent and grace. Connor's work sustains a lucidity, a clarifying presence of light works through her text. Its clarities enhance the mysteries it follows. An exciting demonstration of how a poet places herself in a landscape unthinkable without her."
