The poems in Mrs. Dumpty are about "a great fall," the dissolution of a long and loving marriage, but they are not simply documentary or elegiac. What interests Chana Bloch is the inner life: how we are formed by our losses and our parents' losses, how we learn what we need to know through our intuitions and confusions, how we deny and delay and finally discover who we are."I was spellbound by Mrs. Dumpty. Chana Bloch deals with the most agonizing personal experience with hair-raising honesty and, always, unwavering control. Her command of metaphor is absolutely authoritative. . . . Mrs. Dumpty isn't a comforting book, but I admire the speaker's rare ability to step outside herself, to look at herself and her situation with harrowing candor, wit, hard-won wisdom, deep feeling. The supply of forceful metaphor seems inexhaustible, the language sounds like a living voice. This is a stunning collection."¿X. J. Kennedy"Chana Bloch's Mrs. Dumpty is an exceptionally strong book. The more powerful the words, the more piercing the images, the deeper the healing. That is what real poetry can do. And that is what Mrs. Dumpty succeeds in doing: healing with words, making this life livable."¿Yehuda Amichai
