by Sandra M. Gilbert
'The poems in Sandra Gilbert's Blood Pressure seem, to me, to be a triumph of exquisite learning....Over and over, she chronicles her 'cool sensual descent' into the fertile dark underworld of Dionysian creativity, which, like her Sicilian aunts' Brooklyn summer kitchen, becomes 'the cool root' of her poetry.' -Diane Wakoski
