Copious and musical, Molly Sutton Kiefers poems make room for all manner of lyricisms, both domestic and archetypal. Evoking the generations of the female world in City of Bears, Kiefer opens her poems, like a series of precisely arranged doors, to usher us closer to lifes fertile meanings.- Annie FinchCity of Bears uses the sympathetic imagination to explore a musical contact zone between human and non-human intelligences, converging most profoundly as mutual animal maternity.

The tenderness here results from the depth of human recognition of the other, and these poems acknowledge the urge to instigate and really honor contact at all points along the wheel of animal life. The almost clairvoyant faculty of the language treats conception, growth, birthing, identity-formation, pregnancy, production, faltering light, death and return in exquisitely constructed, tumbling musical lines, and how we love the littlest pleasured bleat. Molly Sutton Kiefer has beautifully followed the call of integration and, poem by poem, showed us one distinctive version of the embrace of shared and interior wildernesses.- Sarah FoxTo say that Molly Sutton Kiefer’s poems are about nature—human and otherwise—would be to tell only half the story.

I mean that this poet not only portrays the passions of a life bound to loved ones, as to the earth, but that she manages to embody that passion in tactile, pliant, expertly fashioned lines and sentences. City of Bears is an excellent collection by an excellent poet.- Peter Campion
