"Haunted by the ghosts of Greek tragedy, Romanticism, Surrealism and Latin-American poetry, Beatriz Hausner forges a world all her own, a unique alchemical fusion of sensuality and spirituality, eroticism and irony, red quicksilver and green sulfur."
- Michael Löwy
"Elegant, thirsty, and visionary poems, echoing with song, Hausner works at the height of her clairvoyant powers, depicting the beloved 'shackled to strange furniture' to satisfy a relentless, engulfing, trans-historical love."
- Tamara Faith Berger
Praise for She Who Lies Above
“Utterly unique, She Who Lies Above blends and transmutes erudition and invention, image and eros, allusion and alchemy to unveil marvels on every page; to read it is to be ensorcelled.” —Peter Dubé, author of The Headless Man
“Knowingly, with invention and grace, and as she conjures the boundless delights of body and mind, Beatriz Hausner tells us the story of the ill-fated scholar, Hypatia, and her student and lover, Synesius. An enchantment.” —Rikki Ducornet
