"Love and Scorn is a highly original work. The poems are hard-felt and new, with surprises around every corner. Carol Frost is a realist, a realist of excitements and exaltations. She is one of the three or four best poets of her generation." --Donald Justice


"[U]ndoubtedly one of the best books of the year." --Dictionary of Literary Biography Yearbook 2000


"Carol Frost's powerhouse poems . . . are saturated with urgency. Their special province is the violence reflected in our innermost selves, where conscience is often defeated by knowledge of a world that is not only terrifying and beautiful, but highly deterministic." —Gettysburg Review
