Article about Tightening the Circle over Eel Country


On Tightening The Circle Over Eel Country, which won the Great Lakes Colleges Association's "New Writer's Prize for Best First Book of Poetry 1975-76":

        "Elisavietta Ritchie's poetry combines a Byzantine elegance with straightforward plain style honesty. The extraordinary range of her interests -- work, love, sensuality, and man's plight in a forlorn civilization -- is reinforced by her exquisite regard for language and a lively fascination with the possibilities of form." William Packard, editor, New York Quarterly
