Carol Smallwood is ahead of the curve, tapping into the treasure trove of history to create richly meaningful new works using potent traditional techniques. She is truly a poet of the future.
–Evan Mantyk, President, The Society of Classical Poets, Mount Hope, New York
In this volume, Carol Smallwood captures the glory and grind of daily life with ample references to classical characters, finding in them ample metaphors that cast light on the human condition and the common questions we ask about the simplest things—such as, about the night sky—notably "Why?"
–Mike Foldes, Founder/Executive Editor, Ragazine
Carol Smallwood may become Everyman’s poet—make that Everywoman’s! In her "Visits" she makes us see beauty in mundane. No heroics or tricks. Merely whispers or gentle nudges, a poet’s poet.
