Description


Poetry. Women's Studies. This book ASYLUM by Elizabeth Marino is great poetry-the kind the twenty-first century needs. I was pleasantly shocked by its incisiveness and saddened by its insights into depths... It's clear that she has learned mastery of her imagery, metaphors, metonyms, symbols; all go to make this collection a packed masterpiece that makes you gasp at its beauty and cry at its depth into the human condition in its nuances and not in its generalizations. It 'irrupts' into you and refuses to leave you. My hope is that it gets many awards and is prescribed for study in universities, colleges and schools... I feel humbled to have known such a great poet.-Dr. Koshy AV

You had me on 'Contents'-the Contents alone-I had to read it It was an emotional ride; I felt sad, I laughed, I blushed and it hit home. I felt very powerful-uplifting and women empowering. I loved it -Eneida Martino

Intensely dramatic is its imagery wording where interval haikus appear from nowhere, gasping for quick breath in the middle of all the corners of the American world, including Independence Day and the Vietnam War. Her narration is so vividly aloft that it needs down-to-earth short narrative memoirs so as to end on a high note. A must read for international readers.- -ng Th n

Endurance can be the knife under the skirt. With this one sentence, Elizabeth Marino's ASYLUM warns and seduces you. To say the writing is fierce, reflective, tender, only begins to scratch the surface. She is PRESENT. She endures, she cuts to the core of oppression without rhetoric, just resonance. ASYLUM reveals a writer at her personal best. In a culture built on silence and erasure, Elizabeth's work is a talisman of survival.-Lisa Alvarado
