“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
