by Kathy Lou Schultz, winner of the 1994 MRBA
"At present an exciting new formalism, specifically Lesbian, is emerging here of which Shultz is one of the shining lights. The writing weds the adventure of the language experiments since 1950 with an evocative, strip mine of the personal, of the body, of the self's lonely and communal construction."
"Formally accomplished, sensual, fiercely incisive, Re dress at times has affinities with Stein's Lifting Belly, at times with Rosmarie Waldorp's Lawn of Excluded Middle, but Shultz's poems are wholly underivative. The pleasure and authority of her writing are substantial."
