"COVERS is a tour de translation that brings Dante up to speed with the 21st century. Deftly shifting registers between Inferno-speak and news-speak, Susan Landers antes up a resolute refusal to refract the rapture of the 'blood shuffle' aftermath. Indeed, 'the audacity dragon has a daddly complex.' But in this 'woe song sung' Landers offers us poetic remixes that quietly inscribe a sense of community, pressing us forward toward ethical remuneration."—Jules Boykoff
"Encounters with the grand tradition of literary versionings of Hell yield in Landers' COVERS an agonistic sequence of lyrics, one that wickedly 'plays the structure' (Foucault) of the American empire's reality-making in polyphonic protest."—Carla Harryman
