    It's too facile to connect Miller's poems with fairy tales...still, there are elements of unexplained-blood-spilled-in-misty,-silent-woods, etc. etc. Miller's poetry reminds me quite a bit of Patricia Lockwood's. Both have an evasive quality tied to themes and images of the sensuality ...

    I love the wildness of these poems. CEREMONIAL hums with bee-song and salt, whispered invocations and shoulder blades and the heat of stars. Carly Joy Miller is an original and unforgettable voice. I?ll be thinking about these poems for a long, long time. ...

    This collection of poems is alive, haunted, and haunting. Miller commemorates the war over bodies between the sacred and profane, her speakers often caught somewhere in the midst?protesting, pulsing, participating. ?My nakedness is nothing holy,? Miller writes, and throughout Cer...

    My goodness I love this book. Ceremonial is a trove of writing which engages the sensual and the spiritual: where the body intersects with music, with pain, with God. These poems are frenetic and clear-eyed. To Miller, anything can be a verb, anything can be made to move. "A kiss qu...

    Miller has a way of sliding images down the tumbling ramp of syntax, thoughts and pictures morphing fluidly from one to the next, that should be studied in poetry classrooms throughout the English-speaking world. An inventive, affecting, unbridled debut. ...
