“There are travel writers and travel poets; and I know which I prefer. Ms. Karp is a travel poet; she is also a traveller and a linguist. She is able to bring a reporter’s veracity to her subjects, made special by her particular vision and style.” - Michael Bengerter
Writing on Sudden Maraschinos, Katherine Gallagher remarked that Jacqueline Karp’s work is “stylistically adventurous, with journeys into other cultures, other voices. Karp’s poetry is a delight — distinguished by intelligence, toughness and lyrical grace.”
