"Some writers leave their creative handprints in dark caves where only later happenstance may, perhaps, discover them. Some writers stamp their entire selves upon the language, upon the culture, upon literature and upon our consciousness in so intimate, singular, well-illuminated and indelible a manner that there can be no mistaking their poems and prose for those of another. Such a writer is Marcia Douglas."
