    “a perfected transparence of expression, warmth of tone,"Her images are precise and a singular blend of sadnesstrue to life, and good humor, of painthey reflect her own sharp wit and acceptance--a radiant patience few people ever achieve and few writers ever successfully render.

    Alfred Corn, writing in the 1977 Georgia Review

    full of a way of looking at the world that was both very precise, but also not pompous, questioning, rather than giving answers to what she saw”
