Anne Higgins' poetry can best be described as naturalistic, consuming and ingenious. Each poem in her book, At The Year's Elbow, causes a rippling effect upon the reader's imagination.
--Rebecca Broadway, POETICVOICES.com
Anne Higgins has a passion for poetry. Her verse draws the reader into a world alive with feelings and provocative thought. These poems point to the deeper recesses of human experience and bring the listener into the presence of much joy and sorrow, much light and darkness. A realistic poet here.
....I never thought of September as the Year's Elbow. What an image--one I won't forget...Now Anne Higgins--she is like Jessica Powers. The same wonderful insight into nature. The same seeing in the ordinary the extraordinary.
...such good and strong poems...seem to have such control and thoughtfulness.
