Poetry. Women's Studies. Sparkling musicality, deep emotion and discerning reflection distinguish O' Garden's poems. Here is a fine intelligence at work--and at play--revealing a tonic perspective in a range of poetic expression, including lyric, narrative and her own innovative fulcrum forms. Her close observation and sensual delight in language make FULCRUM an experience both grounding and uplifting.

For many years now, the poet, playwright, and memoirist Irene O'Garden has been a hero to me. I think of her as a walking, writing, beam of light...numberless others will come to know her gifts and, most of all, her captivating talent for wonder and marvel.--Elizabeth Gilbert

Fulcrum is a stunning assessment of human life on the planet, ...a newer version of The Waste Land...the poems once read will become part of you and help you 'know the knowing that we know.'--Yuyutsu Sharma

Somewhere between Wordsworth and Dylan Thomas but soaring on her own wings, Irene O'Garden flies high, taking language to new strata with effortless-appearing dips and ascents which made me gasp.--Laura Shaine Cunningham

Her technique suggests influences ranging from Donne to Bishop, from Frost to Moore. Soulful and rewarding, these poems remind us that 'We're not made of matter but of mattering.'--T.R. Hummer

Beautiful imagery, powerful emotions, simplicity, complexity and thought-provoking subjects--all drawn from relatable life experiences...This is a beautiful collection.--Professor Jane Kinney-Denning of Pace University.
