"A wildly gifted poet. . . . Garrigue was our one lyric poet who made ecstasy her home." --Stanley Kunitz

"Her way with language was Mozartian, breathtaking in its ability to ring change after change on a theme, Mozartian bursts of language, never leaving the subject, enabling the eye to see clearly, while delighting the ear with sound." --Harvey Shapiro

"A brilliant poet. Her idiom is modern, yet has a kind of Book of Hours simplicity." -- Robert Lowell
