“Wheeling, and fierce; a voice continuously evolving, speaking directly from her own haunted yet intimate, 2000-now. Dark Green is a wonder and a gift.” –Peter Gizzi

“Reading Emily Hunt’s Dark Green one feels things one couldn’t have before imagined possible.” –Kevin Killian

“Emily Hunt’s precision and bold intelligence discover what ought to be discovered on a daily basis . . . From Dark Green we get a hint at how to register the almost invisible nuances that fuel our spirits, minds, and hearts.” –Dara Wier

"This relationship between reality and surreality, between inner and outer worlds, is also the proving ground where the poet must find a way to live in the one world she's been given; in Hunt's work that struggle is beautiful, funny, painterly, and terrifying." –Publishers Weekly

"The complexity of these poems' precision, itself a simple machine, is what's spectacular about them." –Davy Knittle, American Microreviews

"vibrant and arresting" —JoAnna Novak, Diagram

"Hunt’s poems don’t shy away from the kind of cosmic attention I’m concerned with even as they find, somehow, like a piece of hay in a haystack, the beating heart of the self in all of space and time." —Seth Landman, Weird Sister
